Re: What's Your Plan?
This is going to sound political, but it is what it is. Yes, Abbott could allow districts to come up with their own guidelines, just like last school year. Unfortunately, he is looking to appease a larger audience than just Texas considering he is looking at a potential 2024 presidential bid. Abbott can keep saying that families can still choose to have their kids wear masks at school but I don't think he grasps the reality of what happens in schools across the state. How many kids are "out of dress code" wearing something there parents didn't know they left the house about? Do parents really think kids are going to keep masks on without someone telling them to do so? Most of my corrections this past year in the hallway was telling kids to pull up their masks. How are teachers to know which kid's parents want them to wear a mask or not? I'm not a "sky is falling" type of person, but this is a disaster in the making considering more than half the school age population is currently ineligible to even get the vaccines.
