When cities and states across the country began making news for delaying the start of the school year or forcing students to learn from home, Grassfire decided to ask our nationwide network of grassroots conservatives what they thought. Over the past week, more than 12,000 team members voted in our one-question "Get Kids Back to School?" QuickPoll. The results were overwhelmingly in favor (96%) of children returning to their classrooms. Only 4% of Grassfire Nation wants schools to stay closed.
Early this morning, we shared these results with the offices of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Capitol Hill. It's important that they know where you and so many other American patriots stand. Grassfire urged McCarthy and McConnell to continue standing with President Trump to re-open schools on time and in person.
On Thursday, the CDC said that children "are far less likely to suffer severe symptoms. Death rates among school-aged children are much lower than among adults. ... Aside from a child’s home, no other setting has more influence on a child’s health and well-being than their school."
