ICYMI – Philadelphia was starting the nonsense back up again.
If you live in Philly and have a child in school, you better have gotten stocked up on masks.
After the holiday break, all students in the Philadelphia public school system had to wear masks for 10 days.
School district spokeswoman Christina Clark stated, “This is a proactive measure to reduce the spread of COVID-19.”
According to Clark, putting face diapers on the kids is “supporting healthy environments.”
Sadly, Philadelphia was not alone in this.
Not surprisingly, Los Angeles and Oakland also considered mask mandates for schools.
Philadelphia was one of the harder-hit school districts in the country by COVID in terms of learning.
The district’s scores are down 25 percent, from 21.6 to 16.2.
The school district had a goal to hit a proficient or better rating of 28.7, so it fell short by 43.55 percent, or 12.5 points.
Do not expect any pushback from members of Congress, as newly elected Senator John Fetterman (D-PA) called school lockdowns an “absolute necessity.”
