    The Massachusetts Teachers Association is now calling for the closing of all public schools for two weeks.

    “For the good of students, educators and our communities, the MTA is calling today for all public schools in the Commonwealth to shut down immediately for two weeks, while preparing for a longer closure if necessary,” said Massachusetts Teachers Association President Merrie Najimy. “This urgent step is needed to make a significant and consistent impact on the spread of COVID-19, which we all know is a potentially deadly virus.”
