Several Virginia districts are suing over Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s mask mandate ban.

Background: On his first day in office, Virginia Governor Youngkin announced an executive order to end mask mandates.  

The order allows parents to opt their children out of the school mask requirements.  

The lawsuit is separate from a petition from state Attorney General Jason Miyares.

What Happened: Seven Virginia school districts are attempting to challenge the implementation of Gov. Youngkin’s order.  

Fairfax County Public Schools  

Alexandria City Public Schools  

Arlington Public Schools  

Falls Church City Public Schools  

Hampton City Schools  

Prince William County Public Schools  

Richmond Public Schools  

“Today’s action is not politically motivated … the lawsuit is not brought out of choice but out of necessity,” the districts said. (per The Washington Examiner)

  What Happens Next: While litigation is pending Gov. Youngkin says parents should adhere to the mask mandate.  

What Republicans Say: Conservative shave praised Youngkin’s push to put parents back in charge of health decisions for their children. Asra Nomani of the parent activist group Parents Defending Education blasted some school districts for blatantly ignoring parents.  

“Parents elected Gov. Glenn Youngkin to office to win back parental rights over issues from what is taught in schools to whether a child wears a mask at school,” Nomani said. “Mr. Brabrand, who is on his way out as superintendent, is setting up a showdown with Gov. Youngkin — and parents.”

I don’t know exactly how it happened but the system has resulted in the dumbest people becoming teachers. The teacher’s union in our country is EVIL and does absolutely nothing to help our country.

Do you stand with the parents who think that kids should be masked?
All of the kids at a Christian school near me are masked.
Should those parents be arrested for child abuse?

The childrens wellbeing should a teachers first concern of a good teacher. This includes the childrens mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. The masks have been proven useless. So how is it helping their wellbeing to wear them. This a simple matter of the teachers desire to control, control, control. It is a childish effort on the teachers part to say to the parents, “we don’t care if they are your children. We are teachers. we are better than you, and we don’t have to do as you say. Sounds like a bunch of two year old children, doesn’t it? Are these teachers actually mature enough to be teaching children?

Albert is just a “button pusher”.He always asks for proof of your position, but never gives any of his own.My proof masks don’t work- If your wearing a mask and someone cuts a fart (a real reeker)- can you smell it? So masks don’t work. Albert is either a spoiled teenager/unemployed adult in his parents basement or a Fed plant.

The same reason they wear goggles and an apron–to keep blood and other fluids from spewing all over them.

Hey Albert how many children are performing technical surgical operations. Typical liberal bringing theory to a fact conference. Just one thing does the mask still work with your head up your rear ended?
