Thank you EVER SO much!

One of our lovely FFP2 masks

Thank you ever so much educational authorities of Spain for your consideration towards the safety of EOI teachers of Majorca in times of COVID-19. As I can see that you have considered that teachers that remain in classes for four hours a day, (plus extra time within the premises), with a maximum of 19 students, are not at risk, and therefore, are not in the need of vaccination against COVID-19. Thank you ever so much, for finally reaching the decision of providing us with a batch of FFP2 masks. That was such a kind gesture on your behalf! Some of us now feel much safer doing those things that teachers usually do such as: communicate with students, move around the classroom hither and thither, pick up assignments, hand out assignments, correct assignments, and stuff of the kind that form the multiple everyday activities of a teacher (not to mention that we now clean all the furniture and make sure the classroom is well ventilated).

I personally think it would have been a wiser decision to have allowed teachers to decide for themselves on the issue of whether they want to be vaccinated or not, depending on their own particular situation, but I suppose you reached your decision after a very hard and difficult debate, bearing in mind all the facts. By the way, a 90 per cent of us share a secondary school with secondary students and teachers and therefore, do NOT work in an isolated building as one of your spokespersons mistakenly claimed during an interview. It goes without saying, that it would be really nice if you could check this info.

  1. Thank you very much José Antonio for your support. Yes, it’s dreadful that teachers should not have the right to decide on such an important matter which involves their lives as well as the lives of their relatives. Many of my colleagues have children and parents that will also be at risk it they were to catch this terrible virus. I so wish that the authorities used some common sense in the management of this pandemic!
