Teachers say it's dangerous to reopen

School openings also will need to be consistent with safety precautions as defined by the Florida Department of Health and local health officials and be "supportive of Floridians, young and adult, with underlying conditions that make them medically vulnerable," according to the order.

The order appears to follow President Donald Trump's wishes. He tweeted, "SCHOOLS MUST OPEN IN THE FALL!!!" which Corcoran retweeted late Monday after announcing the emergency order.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said last week, as cases stabilize in the state, that some city schools will reopen in the fall with a staggered schedule and a limited capacity of students in classrooms. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said state law decides whether schools can reopen, and while he hopes schools can reopen, he won't do so if it would endanger students or teachers.

Teachers say it's dangerous to reopen

Teachers in some of Florida's largest school districts are pushing back against the reopening plan.

"The Governor and Secretary are pushing a political and economic agenda over the safety and well-being of students, teachers and school employees," the Orange County Classroom Teachers Association said in a statement this week. "While we know that face-to-face learning is optimal, CTA will not support a reopening plan that could expose students, teachers or their families to illness, hospitalization or death."
