Many of Minnesota’s teachers are “overwhelmed” in the classroom amid COVID-19. That’s according to a new survey of around 9,700 members of Education Minnesota. Union President Denise Specht says the stress is a result of many factors, including…

“A lack of the necessary resources, whether it’s the lack of the number of staff required to do teaching and learning safely, or it may just be a lack of general supplies that are needed.”

Specht says about 30-percent of educators who took the survey are thinking about quitting or retiring. And she says that’s a lot of people considering there is already a teacher shortage in Minnesota.
