An open letter to State Governors (IA only)

Keep school online and safe from COVID-19

7 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

It is despicable that you are putting your political agenda over the health and lives of Iowa's students, educators, and school staff. We closed the schools in March to keep children and teachers safe from COVID-19, when the cases in Iowa were few. Now, the cases have skyrocketed to hundreds and hundreds a day, and you want them to go back? School districts have the sense and decency - that you apparently lack - to close and offer school 100% online, so that our communities can be safe from this devastating disease... and you want to punish them? For what purpose? To bend people to your rule? This virus has no agenda. It has no politics. It will ravage our communities because you don't have the spine to do what is right by the people you're supposed to serve. Schools have to wait to close until 15% of a community are infected? Des Moines has a population of roughly 216,000 people. That's 34,500 people infected, their lives apparently meaningless to you. Are the people you love disposable, or just ours? Let our school districts decide what's best for their communities. Let them protect the health of their students and staff. I have more faith in their leadership than your lack of one.
