Public school teachers in San Diego are providing in-person learning for illegal migrant children while schools remain closed for their students due to COVID-19.
Just like other parts of the country, schools in the San Diego Unified School District closed their doors over a year ago because of the virus.
The San Diego Convention Center is currently used to provide temporary housing and in-person learning.
Fox News reports:
Teachers from San Diego Unified School District are teaching migrant children in person before their own students, Fox News has learned.
The San Diego County Board of Education will be sending teachers for in-person learning for the migrant children at the convention center. It's great there's in-person learning for them, I wish every child in San Diego County was allowed the same opportunity.

One parent commented in an email to Fox News.
Fox News reports:
“The system is broken when San Diego teachers are teaching migrant children in person, but the 100k students of taxpaying families at San Diego Unified School District are stuck learning in Zoom school,” Emily Diaz, an SDUSD parent, told Fox News in an email.
Right now, approximately 500 teenage girls are sheltering at the downtown convention center arriving from Texas on charter flights and buses.
So far, 37 unaccompanied minors tested positive for COVID-19 at the shelter.
It gets worse. 37 of the 500 teens tested positive for Covid. That’s a case rate of 7,400 per 100K residents!!! San Diego is at 5.5/100K or ~1,345X less.@GavinNewsom & @ToddGloria think this is OK but teaching kids in their own community isn’t?https://t.co/m2IiWbgI4h

Critics commented on social media.
Democrats don’t care about masks when it comes to illegal migrants crossing the southern border.
But won’t let your child go back to school without wearing one.

Are you effing kidding me right now?!!! What a slap in the face of every struggling parent and child who is part of SDUSD. Seeing this all unfold from afar is unreal. We were part of SDUSD but moved and our son is now FT 5 days in Tampa. This is absolutely insane and infuriating!

Is this why the homeless were removed from tue convention center?
Can Democrats just come out and say that Americans are second rate to ILLEGALS!

It’s outrageous illegal migrant children are granted in-person learning while the educational needs of American children are denied.
