While a nationwide survey was released showing that a percentage of teachers are leaving the profession in the wake of dealing with the coronavirus and extended distance learning, Morris Schools Superintendent Troy Ferguson told the KMRS Community Connection that there has not been any such exodus of teachers out of the district.
“To say that this has been frustrating for all involved, but especially education professionals, is an understatement,” said Ferguson. “And everybody is — I think, not just here in Minnesota but across the state and across the nation — frustrated. And it can be a scary thing, there’s just all kinds of emotions tied in to this. But teachers get into teaching because they want to teach. They enjoy sharing their knowledge and wisdom with students.”
The governor is expected to issue guidance for school districts on the upcoming academic year on Monday.
