Mad or Nah?’: Philly residents react to school district’s reopening and ventilation plan

In less than a month, the School District of Philadelphia will attempt to reopen its school buildings for in-person learning to K-2 students. The Philadelphia Federation of Teachers has publicly objected to this plan and has stated they want teachers and school staff to be vaccinated before returning back-to-school. The conversation about back-to-school has intensified over the weekend after a picture of the district’s plan to increase ventilation — window fans attached to wood boards — went viral and drew mockery and concern. P.O.C. talked with a handful of locals about the district’s reopening and ventilation plan and whether window fans are enough.
