STATEWIDE — Most Maine teachers intend to return to classrooms this fall but they’re concerned about their health.
A Maine Department of Education survey said the teachers don’t think students are going to follow guidelines.
The survey went to families, educators, support staff and school leaders last month.
It indicated both teachers and parents share concerns about how well students will adhere to safety requirements.
Only 14 percent of educators agreed or strongly agreed that students would be able to avoid physical contact, and only 22 percent agreed or strongly agreed with the ability of students to wear masks.
