Florida School: Vaccinated Teachers Aren't Welcome In The Classroom


According to the Washington Post, a Miami School is using debunked theories as a reason to tell all it's teachers, that if they get vaccinated, they can't come back. They're saying those who are vaccinated pose a risk to all the unvaccinated students.

The Post from the paper said, Last week, leaders at the Centner Academy, a Miami private school, sent teachers an email with a stark warning: Skip the coronavirus vaccines or else you’re not welcome in the classroom.⁠

“We cannot allow recently vaccinated people to be near our students until more information is known,” the school’s co-founder Leila Centner said in a letter first reported on by the New York Times.⁠

Centner cited debunked misinformation to justify the policy, suggesting that “reports have surfaced recently of non-vaccinated people being negatively impacted by interacting with people who have been vaccinated,” despite medical consensus that the coronavirus vaccines effectively prevent serious infections and carry few risks.⁠

David and Leila Centner identify themselves as “health freedom advocates,” and their school has posted guidance to help parents file for exemptions to state-required vaccinations. In late January, they invited Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a prominent anti-vaccine advocate, to speak at the school.⁠

⁠One parent spoke with a Miami TV station and said she's stuck. She wants to pull her kid out, but she's already paid the $30,000 non-refundable tuition for next school year.

Reactions have been strong. Commenters said,

allergictoyourstankface:/ why would you send your kids to a school where the educators are uneducated?

effkressjr Literally the dumbest thing I've ever read. If you get the vaccine are you contagious with vaccine cooties?

s.wirth3. Guess they’re not into STEM.

alex.e11 As someone from Miami, we’ve given you bath salts, Marco Rubio, Rick Scott, and now this special case. Sorry

The school's website talks about it's school values... “individuality and honor freedom of choice. We are proud that our happiness school does not mandate vaccines of any kind, and we accept religious exemptions.”

So, freedom of choice stops at steps to keep you healthy.
