We are educators and we miss seeing our students in classrooms. But returning to schools without proper health and safety protections exposes our children and their families to COVID-19 — which puts them at greater risk of illness and death. 

Let’s be clear: The pressure to return to LA public schools unsafely is political. It is not science.

That is why we must stand united for a safe return to schools that our students and community members deserve. 

On Saturday, February 20, a 100-car caravan stretched through downtown Los Angeles sponsored by Students Deserve, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, Los Angeles Alliance for New Economy, Eastside Padres Contra La Privatización, Reclaim Our Schools Los Angeles, United Teachers Los Angeles.

Let’s talk about what makes @drrivas2022 such a transformative candidate:

🌳 Green Spaces and Carbon-Free Schools
💰Historic Investments in our public education
👩‍🏫Fully Staffed Classrooms
📓Nurses, Therapists and Counselors at every school
Imagine if every school also provided family programming, after-school tutoring, and wrap-around services to community members.

That is the bold vision @drrivas2022 is championing alongside teachers, parents and the community.

Even when it's only 72 degrees outside, schoolyards can get as hot as 96 degrees in the sun🔥

We have been taking readings on asphalt schoolyards, comparing the temperatures under the minimal tree shade we can find and in direct sunlight. These differences can be as large as 42 degrees! We need more trees on schoolyards to keep our students safe 👏👏
