You know lets put pressure on people going through a pandemic, what could go wrong.
DeVos is just as wrong,
From ML live,
Plans for partial attendance are not acceptable to DeVos, according to comments she made on a call with state governors, which was obtained by the Associated Press.
She said anything less than “fully operational” schools would fail students and taxpayers.
“Ultimately, it’s not a matter of if schools need to open, it’s a matter of how. School must reopen, they must be fully operational. And how that happens is best left to education and community leaders,” DeVos told governors, according to the Associated Press.
She just said schools can do whatever they want as long as they do what she wants.
Fortunately, some education leaders are pushing back.

The move, which comes as Florida is experiencing a surge in cases, received quick backlash from Florida Education Association President Fredrick Ingram, who said, “It’s clear in communications with our members that educators are scared.”
“They don’t trust politicians to make sure things are safe — rightly so, with the record-breaking number of cases being reported. The governor is trying to brush that off. Safety for students and school employees needs to be at the center of our conversations about reopening schools,” Ingram said.
Teachers and advocates across the country have voiced concerns about how the reopening of schools is being handled, from concerns about underlying health conditions or the possibility of infecting family members to uncertainty surrounding child care for their own kids.
