IWF President Carrie Lukas spoke about the mask mandate and school choice at the Fairfax County School Board meeting. Children are at the lowest risk of contracting Omicron, and yet they are forced to wear masks at school. Thus, it is time that parents’ voices are heard and that they are to be given control of the money allocated to the school board so that the funds can be used towards educators that can respect and trust parents’ judgment.
