Massachusetts Education Commissioner Jeff Riley on Tuesday called for elementary school students to return to in-person learning five days a week in April, a move that will likely ignite passions across the state.
Riley made his comments during the monthly meeting of the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education and said he would ask members next month to give him the authority to instruct districts statewide to open their classrooms full time five days a week.
“We agree with President Biden it’s time to get students back to school more robustly,” he said.
