China, With $400 Billion Iran Deal, Could Deepen Influence in Mideast
The countries signed a sweeping pact on Saturday that calls for heavy Chinese investments in Iran over 25 years in exchange for oil — a step that could ease Iran’s international isolation.
Where is the plan to vaccinate our educators?
I write this on behalf of the thousands of New Jersey educators who are frustrated by the lack of access to
the COVID vaccine.
On March 1, Governor Murphy stated that educators are eligible for the COVID vaccine and a plan is
forthcoming. On March 2, President Biden set the goal of vaccinating all educators by March 31. It is now
March 15, and no plan has been shared and thousands of educators see no pathway to receiving a vaccine.
If the goal is for all educators to receive a vaccine by March 31, why hasn’t a plan been shared so we can
As a school superintendent who is responsible for thousands of students and hundreds of staff members, I
can assure you that we have no vested interest in continuing with the status quo. We want to return to
normal and vaccinating our educators is the pathway to a return to normal this school year.
Rather than planning for our students and staff to potentially return to school, in the absence of a vaccination
plan, what is occurring is a veritable “Hunger Games” between school districts as they strive to get staff
vaccinated. School districts are being pitted against one another, spending time trying to form
“partnerships” with local hospitals, pharmacies, or medical professionals to vaccinate their staff. This is
exacerbating equity issues that unfortunately have already tainted this vaccine rollout.
While lack of vaccines is often cited as the cause, it is important to note that vaccines are available for
many educators. Some are being vaccinated through the aforementioned partnerships. In some districts,
parents are assisting staff members to procure appointments, often waking up at 4:00AM to find
appointments for educators. Teachers are traveling hours, sometimes taking personal days, to receive
vaccines that they hopefully expected to receive via some kind or organized state plan.
For those of us who listened to the State, we are standing by helpless, while those around us procure
vaccines from various sources. Please provide us a strategic and systematic plan to vaccinate our educators.
After an entire year of challenge and upheaval, our teachers want nothing more than to be vaccinated. With
Spring Break on the horizon, now is the time to implement an aggressive program to accelerate educator
vaccination so we can plan for the return of our students. They deserve a clear, quick implementation of
what was promised to them.
