HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - Hundreds of teachers around the state are expected to call for a safe and fully-funded return to school this fun.

Organizers said teachers will be gathering in vehicle caravans in 25 different cities and towns on Thursday afternoon.

The largest is expected to head from West Hartford to the governor's mansion in Hartford.

Many teachers continue to say that there are not enough safety protocols to safely return to the classroom during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Connecticut Education Association released a survey this week.

When given a choice between fully reopening, a hybrid, or full distance learning, most were comfortable with full distance learning.

Forty-six percent supported full distance learning, 39 percent were comfortable with a hybrid system and only 16 percent want to fully reopen.

Gov. Ned Lamont's plan, however laid the responsibility on individual school districts.

Maybe if they spend more time brainstorming on how to go back to school instead of painting their cars and making noise. Or is that not allowed in their union contracts?
