Why is Stephanie Murphy ignoring the science on reopening schools?
Camille Gallo | January 28, 2021

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is out with a new study showing there has been little evidence that schools have contributed meaningfully to increased transmission of the coronavirus.  

But teachers unions across the country are refusing to show up to work despite a “striking drop in students’ academic performance” and a surge in student suicide.  

Democrats – including Stephanie Murphy – have largely sided with teacher unions on the issue, despite the science showing schools should reopen.     

Why is Murphy ignoring the science when it comes to putting children back in school? Follow the money. Teachers unions contributed over $14,000 to Murphy’s campaign in 2020.    

NRCC Comment: “Stephanie Murphy’s refusal to call out her special interest donors is both causing students to fall behind and threatening their well-being. Her anti-science position is downright shameful.” – NRCC Spokeswoman Camille Gallo
