Thousands of professors who cannot work. In Lombardy schools there are between 3 and 4 thousand, between teachers and school staff, the novax who will be suspended from work and will be at home without a salary until they have had the vaccine against covid. The estimate is from Matteo Loria, president of the National Association of Presidents of Lombardy and dean of the Caramuel Roncalli high school in Vigevano, in the province of Pavia.
“We can only make estimates but of these people there are two, three, four for each of the 1,100 Lombard schools between teaching and non-teaching staff – he explained -. On January 10, when the schools reopen after the Christmas break, they will therefore be between 3 and the 4 thousand teachers and workers who will not show up, an absolute number that becomes significant and for which we are very worried “.
Finding substitutes in this situation will not be easy, according to Loria, because they are substitutes that we do not know how long they will last, so not everyone will be willing to accept and in any case from Monday when we return to class it will take a few days to organize.
For this reason January 10 “will be a day of ordinary madness – he explained -. Not only for the absences of teachers and no vax staff but also for those who have tested positive for Covid in recent days”. The risk of a postponement of the start of the lessons “is not there but we will be facing serious problems of staff shortages” he concluded.
