MONTCLAIR, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Students in Montclair, New Jersey were supposed to head back into their classrooms Monday for the first time since March.
But it didn’t happen, despite a plan announced by the superintendent.
Parents and kids carried signs reading, “Get our kids back in school” as they protested outside The Edgemont School, demanding the district reopen schools, CBS2’s Meg Baker reported.
“Today is the 318th day that our children have not been in school. I’m advocating for our children who are desperate to go back to school,” said Deirdre Carlough.
“I just want them to have a chance,” said Kara Mohren. “My daughter says she wants to see a chalkboard.”
