Reopen Schools, Yesterday
The school-age children of Montgomery County are suffering due to the steadfast refusal of Montgomery County Public Schools to reopen our classrooms for full-time, in-person learning. Our special needs, low-income, or otherwise disadvantaged communities are unfortunately bearing the brunt of this misguided decision and consequently suffering needlessly.
We are approaching one entire year of remote learning in MCPS. Since closing down last March, our leaders have repeatedly said we will “follow the science” on when it is safe to reopen. Yet now that a scientific consensus is emerging in favor of reopening schools the teacher’s unions and special interests have bullied MCPS leadership into ignoring any science or data that does not support keeping schools closed.
Your contribution will help us get the word out about these negative consequences.
