Teacher writes anonymous letter to Pitt County Board of Education saying, “Today you failed”

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – A Pitt County educator, who wishes to remain anonymous for fear of losing her job, says she is disgusted by the board’s actions and inactions during a school board meeting on Tuesday regarding COVID-19 and classroom learning.

The teacher says the board’s responsibility is to determine the best plan for students, staff, and teachers and says they failed at that job when deciding during a Tuesday meeting to resume in-person learning on Wednesday.

District leaders decided against all-virtual learning. Students who normally attend in-person are scheduled to head back to school on Wednesday. The educator says returning to the classroom puts students, teachers, and families at risk of contracting COVID-19.

WITN contacted Pitt County Board of Education members for their response or a statement about the teacher’s letter, but they did not respond.
