ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – Mother and father and college students reacted Thursday to the Albuquerque Public Faculties’ choice to remain digital, saying they really feel nobody is listening to them. Many college students hoping to return in individual and even return to staff sports activities say that final night time’s choice didn’t have their greatest pursuits in thoughts. “Your decisions proceed to rob us of in-person studying and sports activities,” one pupil mentioned through the public remark interval for the Wednesday night time assembly. “I am failing all my courses,” mentioned one other pupil.
These are simply a few of the voices of the APS college students earlier than the vote. Now, with the district’s choice to stay digital for the rest of the varsity 12 months, many college students are sad. “Lots of people got here ahead to help the thought of coming again, and regardless of that, the board by some means screwed it up,” mentioned Adrián Jaquez, a senior at Cibola Excessive College. “I believe a variety of seniors really feel actually robbed. We actually have not had an opportunity to get pleasure from our final 12 months.”
