Did the School Department deal fairly with teachers during last week’s work action? A week ago Monday, hundreds of teachers chose not to enter school buildings and instead spent their first work day of the year outside, huddled over their laptops, in protest of building conditions they say are insufficient to prevent spread of COVID-19. Matt Bach, president of the Andover Education Association, says teachers were told not to use the building’s wireless internet service, were not allowed to use port-a-potties provided by the union, and were not allowed inside the buildings to use the restrooms. He has said some teachers were docked a day’s pay. Was the School Department’s response fair?
