LAnse Creuse Public Schools face backlash from teachers for back-to-school plan
MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. LAnse Creuse Public School officials are facing some backlash from the teachers union on their back-to-school plan. The teachers union believes the district has used unfair tactics to force teachers back into the classroom. The district is the fourth largest in Macomb County, with more than 10,000 students and more than 570 teachers. So much so that while there is a virtual option for students, from a third party online school service, there was no virtual option for teachers. The teachers union said they are angry and feel like their arms are being twisted to return to the classroom.
