In the wake of the Newark Board of Education deciding to extend remote learning for all students until Jan. 25, Newark Teachers Union (Local 481) President John M. Abeigon is standing up for the needs of his educators.

“No teacher, especially new teachers, were prepared or trained for this,” Abeigon said in a statement. “If we are to improve our remote teaching, district administrators need to take their boots off our necks and help us instead of applying even more pressure [than] we are already under.”
