Nearly 200 MNPS Teachers, Staff Out Monday After Sickout Last Week

Today begins Teacher Appreciation Week and teacher protests are happening everywhere; and thousands of teachers standing up for themselves and what they believe they deserve.  ANd that includes Nashville. Nearly 200 Metro teachers will not be at work again Monday. On Friday, more than 1,000 teachers called out. McGavock High School saw the biggest number of absences: 123 of the 141 teachers weren’t there. She says they support the teachers and realize we can’t improve the education system without them, which is why she urges leaders to listen to them. She wonders how we can expect teachers to give their all in the classroom when the morale is this low. She says teachers spoke loudly the day before the sick out but the leaders didn’t listen, and our students paid the price. So far, 166 teachers have called out on Monday for personal illness and 25 for family illness.

National Teacher Appreciation Week is Monday, May 6th – Friday, May 10th.
