ALLOW EACH DISTRICT TO DECIDE THE SAFETY OF RE-OPENING SCHOOLS....NOT THE GOVERNORS
July 29, 2020
Re-opening of schools should be decided by each district, based upon the coronavirus numbers within the county of residence. This should NOT be decided by the governor of the state. The Covid-19 Pandemic is worse in America, than in any other country in the World. The United States is not only battling an invisible enemy, but racial unrest is so extreme, Americans are hurting others, and destroying property. Sending children back to school will not only subject them to possible sickness, and brutality, but will also affect their emotional well being. Effects will grow rampant within those schools, pouring out into homes, and communities....making it impossible to manage. A rigid policy to return to school will place far too much burden on teachers. TEACHERS were hired to "TEACH", not to fight the invisible battle against Covid-19, nor to "restructure" the children's minds against RACISM. (That should be the parents' jobs, but many have clearly failed to do so.) Again....please allow the districts to decide the course of action to be taken. It is important to get students back to school, however, a community should decide the timing, and protocol. Thank you.
