(NewsReady.com) – What exactly we should do about schools reopening this fall is a hot topic in the US right now. The COVID-19 pandemic is still a major concern for teachers, parents, and officials, and no one has agreed on a single approach to the problem. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos may have just made the decision for everyone.
On July 6, DeVos told America’s governors she expects all schools to be “fully operational” no matter what’s going on with the coronavirus situation. She said the way that is going to happen “is best left to education and community leaders.”
During an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, the secretary said the government is looking at possibly denying funding for schools that refuse to comply.
Families are demanding that their kids continue to learn this fall. Schools need to reopen and get creative about how to deliver a full school year of learning. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Thanks, @TuckerCarlson, for giving a voice to parents who are demanding better. pic.twitter.com/tOEYMdDzoF

The reality is that getting schools operational again is good for both students and parents. With kids back in the classroom, it’ll be easier and less expensive for adults to get back to work. Nothing is gained by forcing these students to stay home and miss out on their education.
