Dueling protests held over Carlsbad Unified School District’s reopening plans

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Parents, students and staff in Carlsbad are the latest to protest their school district’s reopening decisions.

While some parents are demanding the district to bring students back to class right away, some teachers are arguing they need more safety protocols put in place.

Sharon McKeeman told KUSI’s Nick James that healthy children are contemplating suicide, some even attempting it. Furthermore, she explained that many “Straight A” students are failing classes and have become extremely frustrated.

McKeeman explained her support for reopening our schools in more detail on KUSI News.

Later on the broadcast, KUSI’s Nick James spoke with Supervisor Jim Desmond, who has been leading the fight to get our county back open, including the schools.
