Richard Corcoran and the FLDOE push to risk lives with school openings.

It took Florida 111 days to reach a hundred thousand coronavirus cases and thirteen days to reach 200,000.  Instead of urging districts to pump the breaks, Corcoran screamed the economy, the economy, the economy, and ordered schools open 5 days a week to all students.
