Lawyers Offer Free Living Wills To Florida Teachers

NBC News reports:

A number of Florida lawyers are offering free or discounted living wills for teachers who may be required to return to the classroom this school year. “I had read a story a few weeks ago about three Arizona teachers who’d gone back to school to work on a project,” said Charles Gallagher, whose St. Petersburg law firm, Gallagher & Associates, is among those offering teachers free living wills. “All three contracted COVID-19 and one died.”

Gallagher said he was “taken aback by the story” and he wasn’t the only one, as advocates are now warning about the risks of sending teachers and children back to school prematurely. Yet the question of when schools should reopen remains a divisive one, particularly in Florida, where the state’s largest teachers’ union in the state is suing Gov. Ron DeSantis over his administration’s push to fully reopen public schools next month.
