Why are members of the Des Moines college board blindly following a politician who works so onerous to defund public colleges?
Iowa kids have a proper to obtain an applicable and protected training.
Sending 1000’s of younger, unvaccinated kids into small lecture rooms with out masks or face coverings is a direct violation of this proper to security.
Has it dawned on DMPS board members that the choice they’ve made to “follow the law” and not issue a mask mandate is inflicting households to go away the district? The board’s concern of breaking the legislation has compelled households to maintain their school-aged kids house.
Positive, it is good to know my baby has a category measurement of 17 5-year-old children slightly than 30. However do board members understand our district’s funding relies upon enrollment?
Subsequent yr, when COVID-19 is hopefully behind us, we’ll be paying for the board’s inaction. Actually.
The prohibition on masks mandates is nothing greater than a political ploy for Gov. Kim Reynolds to destroy public training, and board members are being performed.
It’s a law that was shoved into a budget bill in the overnight hours as a present of pressure and supported solely by Republicans who out of the blue turned “pro-choice” and work tirelessly yr after yr to funnel cash into personal, constitution and spiritual colleges.
The board’s actions to disregard security considerations from households like mine below the guise of following the legislation may have a ripple impact in our faculty district for generations.
Simply because Gov. Kim Reynolds wags her finger and says, “You’ll be able to’t do this” doesn’t imply we should blindly obey.
Our youngsters should be represented by decision-makers who will do the fitting factor, even – and particularly – when it’s onerous.
