Protesters block buses on 1st day of Detroit summer school
DETROIT (AP) - Summer classes for hundreds of Detroit students have opened, despite a protest by critics who blocked a bus yard and said the coronavirus makes in-person learning too risky.
Superintendent Nikolai Vitti posted photos of classrooms on Twitter and said 500 kids were being served. Vitti says the district is doing the “right thing.”
It wasn’t immediately clear how many students, if any, couldn’t get to school because of the bus protest.
Students and staff are required to wear masks. The district says classrooms would be limited to 10 to 15 students per teacher.
