The start of the new school year is just a few weeks away, and a statewide survey found that nearly 8 out of 10 Arizona teachers are planning to return to their classrooms amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The survey conducted by the advocacy group Expect More Arizona in partnership with the Arizona State Board of Education found that of the nearly 11,000 teachers who responded, 79% said they plan to return to teaching and 18 percent are still undecided.

While most teachers said the coronavirus isn’t keeping them away, it’s still a big concern.

“Teachers, just like the broader community, are concerned about opening up and the risks associated with that,” Christine Thompson, executive director of Expect More Arizona, told KTAR News 92.3 FM on Monday.
