    Is This Why Trump Doesn’t Care About The Dangers Of Schools Reopening?

    Update: Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan issued an order blocking the mandate to close Montgomery County private schools, saying the decision is for schools and parents, not politicians, to make. However, the school has not yet made an independent decision.This story was originally published on Monday, August 3, 2020, at 5 p.m.President Trump’s insistence on reopening schools across the country amid the coronavirus pandemic is coming under fire once again amid reports that his 14-year-old son Barron Trump’s private school will stay safely closed. St. Andrew’s Episcopal School, the Montgomery County, MD, school where Trump’s youngest child will be enrolled as a high school freshman in the fall, will reportedly be closed through at least October 1. The school year is scheduled to begin on September 8.The decision, which affects all of Montgomery County’s private schools, was made to “protect the health and safety of Montgomery County residents as well as parents, students, teachers, and staff from the spread of COVID-19,” according to a press release from Montgomery County Health Officer Dr. Travis Gayles. Trump has been consistently vocal about the alleged necessity of reopening U.S. schools as the 2020-2021 school year has drawn closer, going so far as to threaten to defund schools that don’t reopen in the fall. He continued to double down as recently as early Monday morning, when he tweeted, “Cases up because of BIG Testing! Much of our Country is doing very well. Open the Schools!” Many on Twitter pointed out the hypocrisy in the fact that the president’s son will be safe at home while others are being forced to return to in-person learning. (That’s when “Barron” started trending.) Barron’s school will be closed because it’s not safe, but he’s perfectly fine risking other people’s children as long as he is insulated and has daily testing. https://t.co/R7N4srza2r — Amee Vanderpool (@girlsreallyrule) August 3, 2020 This is so typical of Trump: Trump votes by mail, but doesn’t think anybody else should. Trump thinks all schools should open up, but it’s appropriate that Barron’s school remains closed. — Bill Madden (@maddenifico) August 3, 2020The Trump administration has issued guidelines on reopening schools “safely and carefully,” including the utilization of teaching methods that include “flexible schedules, cohorting, and master teaching” and $70 billion of the next coronavirus relief bill to “directly support K-12 education.” But many teachers and parents have pushed back, saying they don’t feel safe about going back to work or sending their kids back to school while coronavirus cases are still spiking across the country.According to CNN, only one out of the 15 biggest school districts in the U.S. will let students return for in-person classes this fall, and at least 10 have decided to start the semester with online-only learning. Three schools have opted for hybrid models.Like what you see?
