NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) — A new survey by the Nashville teacher’s union shows 75 percent of educators want Metro Schools to return to all remote classes.

Six teachers in ten say they don’t feel safe in the classroom thanks to coronavirus.

MNPS last week paused its phased plan for returning students to in-person learning due to a sharp spike in new infections citywide.

Nashville children Kindergarten through the fourth grade are back in the classroom. Children fifth grade and above continue to learn remotely.

The Metropolitan Nashville Education Association says 620 teachers from 84 Metro schools responded to the survey.
