School districts throughout the country have been given funds because of Covid. You can find information about it here: https://www.cde.ca.gov
The reality is that billions of dollars were distributed with a criteria that each district submits a ‘plan’ for use of the money and implementation of certain policies. You can read about that here: https://www.cde.ca.gov/fg/cr/
The gist is within 6 months of receipt of funds, a plan must be submitted, and the plan MUST include certain things, like universal and correct wearing of masks, contact tracing, isolation and quarantine , vaccine encouragement, social distancing, etc.
What’s happened is these districts and boards are between a rock and a hard place: they’ve accepted the funds (Santa Barbara got $35 million) and now must comply with the plan to keep it. So, no matter what you say to these folks, it sill be ignored.
VLA Comment: It is not about liberty. Its about greed. Its about disallowing sovereignty and right action and submit to control…for the money!
