Can someone tell me what is really going on Corvid-19 in the United States? It is like the executives in Trump administration don’t really know what it is. Or if it’s real. Or if it truly kills?
Over 135,000 people in the U.S. have died of the virus. All that the Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos could say is for schools to reopen fully. Is that not irrational? California, Florida, and Texas just reported their largest single-day death tolls since the pandemic began. And so, the only decision left is to endanger children’s health?
During a White House Coronavirus Task Force press, DeVos called for schools to open, recommending it a ‘common sense’.
“There’s nothing in the data that suggests that kids being in school is in any way dangerous,” the Education secretary said.
It very nice to have few leaders among many who could speak up for the people. Of which, House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi attacked DeVos’ fierce but dangerous recommendations. Pelosi described the secretary’s comments as terrible.
“They’re messing — the president and his administration — they are messing with the health of our children,” Pelosi said on CNN”
“And when you hear what the administration is saying, we know that they have no appreciation for the failure that has brought us to this point,” she continued. “Going back to school presents the biggest risk for the spread of the coronavirus. They ignore science and they ignore governance in order to make this happen.”
The worst of all, this persistent push for school reopening comes in a time when new coronavirus cases pervade in the South and West. Recently, Florida reported more than 15,000 new cases in a day. In California, 149 deaths were reported on Wednesday. Are these administrators not seeing these numbers spike every day? Or is part of their political agenda, to waste live?
I’m maniacally bewildered, that DeVos could further threaten to cut off school funding if schools don’t resume. is that okay? For me, it appalling.
The Fox News host, Chris Wallace, also saw DeVos’s recommendation as very awful and disastrous. He challenged Trump administration and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos over their unjust decision.
“Are you and the president unilaterally going to cut off funding that’s been approved by Congress — and most of the money goes to disadvantaged students or students with disabilities?”
Wallace continued: “And secondly, isn’t cutting off funding exactly the wrong answer? Don’t you want to spend more money to make schools safer, whether it’s with plastic shields or health checks, various other systems?”
Wallace later asked, “Doesn’t it make more sense to increase funding for schools where it’s unsafe rather than cut off funding?”
It doesn’t make sense for me. And I don’t think it does for anyone.
