However, Bowser sent a warning to teachers that refuse to come back to the classroom in November.

“You know, I’m just going to speak candidly, if we don’t have teachers who want to come in person, we would have to find another set of adults who want to come in person,” Bowser said.

Bowser comments were made after Donald Trump Jr. posted a New York Times article that reported teachers’ unions are not only fighting going back to the classroom but, also fighting to restrict teaching online.
