They made a huge mistake.
Recently on Fox News, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) warned about the dangers of keeping school closed and admitted there was a lack of “scientific evidence” to justify the decision.
According to Breitbart, Paul stated, “You know, I think, immeasurable damage. I’ve been saying to Dr. Fauci and the so-called government experts since May of last year that none of the studies indicate that the kids are good spreaders of this disease, the kids don’t get very sick, really, they don’t tend to transmit the disease either. We have studies now in a dozen different European countries. We have studies of private schools across the United States that haven’t missed a beat and have been in session without any major surge, without significant amount of teachers getting sick. There’s really no scientific evidence towards keeping it closed, but the unions are now saying, oh, well, we need to pass the Green New Deal, and we need to have gender equity or something, you know, that has nothing to do with teaching the kids, and I’m wondering when is the union going to care about actually teaching our kids?”
