Alan Borsuk, senior fellow in law and public policy, spoke about the possibility for Milwaukee Public Schools to return to in-person classes in April. “A lot will depend on the number of teachers who have gotten vaccinations by then, and they think that is not a simple or clear picture,” Borsuk said. “One thing I think that will happen is that the State Department of Public Instruction, at the urging of advocates for special ed kids, have to start bringing in some special ed kids, which for districts all over the country, the first kids they have brought back have been special ed kids and very young kids because those are two populations that really need in-person work.”
