Do you believe that parents should have a choice where their children go to school and how they learn?

Last week, more than 5,200 schools were closed due to overzealous school district quarantine policies and union-driven work stoppages. Some schools canceled school altogether, and others resumed remote instruction.

COVID-era remote instruction endangers children academically, emotionally, and physically. Closing schools leads to devastating learning loss, significant mental health issues, and higher rates of suicide and obesity.

Numerous studies have revealed low COVID-19 transmission rates in schools. In addition, vaccines are widely available and free, and teachers receive priority vaccine access for essential workers.

Do you think parents should have leverage to ensure that their children will not be left behind? Should we fund students directly, rather than bureaucratic school systems? Share your thoughts by taking our school choice poll.
