MA Teachers Protests—COVID-19
( Ed. Note: Documentary photographer Katherine Taylor took these photographs this past August as school districts were debating whether or not to open for the 2020-2021 school year. The images are just as relevant today since Covid cases across the country continue to spiral out of control and school districts once again are grappling with the risks of in-person learning.)
Massachusetts teachers stood in solidarity, reinforced by a circling caravan to call for a remote-only start to the upcoming school year, citing safety concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic. Protests took place in front of Boston City Hall on August 13, 2020 and again in front of the MA State House on August 19, 2020.
