From the beginning of the age of COVID, there has been disagreement on wearing masks for any sort of prevention of the spread of the disease. This is especially true for children whose brains are still developing and oxygen deprivation is a particularly touchy issue.
Parents have long disagreed with school officials on the topic, some going so far as to pull their children out of schools to teach them at home rather than stunt growth and learning that comes with wearing masks.
Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis, himself a father of young children, decreed that mask mandates in Florida schools are not to be allowed for the coming school year. Officials in Broward County went ahead and violated DeSantis’s orders, and brought the wrath of Ron on themselves.
Republican Governor Ron DeSantis’ administration is giving the Broward County School Board until Friday to comply with his executive order banning school districts from forcing students to wear masks with parental consent. If the school refuses, the FDE has threatened to withhold pay from the school officials and administrators behind the mask mandate.
“This letter is sent to express my grave concern regarding your district’s significant neglect in response to the governor’s order banning mask mandates in schools,” Florida education commissioner Richard Corcoran wrote in a letter obtained by RedState. “The action taken today at the Broward County School Board meeting makes it clear that you have no current intentions of complying with this order, which is intended to guarantee choice options to parents/guardians regarding their child while also protecting families and students federal and state-protected rights to privacy.”
“I am immediately initiating an investigation of non-compliance with rules adopted by the Florida Department of Health and the Florida State Board of Education on August 6, 2021. In commencing this investigation, I am demanding that you provide a written response by 5 p.m. on Friday, August 13, 2021, documenting on how your district is complying with [the state order],” he continued.
At least one governor is looking out for the kids. Would that they all would follow suit.
