For the record:
WHO (World Health Organization) encouraged the full reopening of schools LAST SPRING
AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) recommended a full reopening of schools LAST SUMMER
Former President Trump encouraged a full reopening of schools LAST SUMMER
The CDC has recommended the reopening of schools since LAST JULY (And guess what teachers?? WITHOUT NEEDING VACCINES)
President Biden from day one has wanted schools reopened (5 DAYS A WEEK - not one day as was first suggested)
Governor Cuomo for WEEKS has supported schools being OPEN - Today quoted as saying local communities and schools need to be "more aggressive" and GET IT DONE! 5 FULL DAYS!!!
Local legislators in Monroe County have been advocating for full school reopening sending letters to their local superintendents encouraging a 5 day a week reopening
Community members STILL want to make this political
The teachers unions still want to cry it's unsafe
YOUR SUPERINTENDENTS STILL AREN'T DOING THEIR JOBS
County Executive Bello & Dr. Michael Mendoza still CAN'T GET OUT OF THEIR OWN WAY and admit they were wrong
As the founder of ROC for Educational Freedom, I have spent 9 months being accused of being too "Trumpy," pushing a "conservative agenda"(because if you didn't know, only conservatives would want schools open), and not following the science...
Guess what? LET ME SAY IT LOUDER FOR THOSE IN THE BACK --
THIS ISN'T ABOUT POLITICS OR WHO ANY OF US VOTE FOR, BUT WHAT IS BEST FOR CHILDREN!!!!!!
Let it be on the record -- the SCIENCE/DATA as well as DEMOCRATS and REPUBLICANS ALL are agreeing and saying what we have been saying since last MAY...
OPEN . THE . DAMN . SCHOOLS . FULLY!!!
So to all our haters or those who wanted to make this anything but being about the kids and THEIR WELL BEING -- SHAME ON YOU.
It's okay...We were RIGHT! We have always been right. We've always put children first.
It just took everyone else making a ton of mistakes and children's lives and education being destroyed to figure it out. Schools were never problematic. Kids belonged in school full-time and STILL DO!
