As Cases Rise Fast, Mississippi Governor Mandates Masks And Delays Start Of School

August 4, 2020, NPR, Rachel Treisman – The Mississippi Association of Educators, the state’s largest teachers organization, responded to Reeves’ announcement in a statement posted to Facebook on Tuesday evening. They said the plan puts students and educators and their families at risk, calling it “reckless and irresponsible.” The educators are asking for a month-long hiatus on in-person instruction, with an assessment at the beginning of September to determine next steps.
