The real-life ramifications of New Jersey Dems’ refusal to reopen schools
Samantha Bullock | February 22, 2021

Students are falling behind in school. Working parents are struggling – even leaving the workforce – due to kids stuck at home. The next generation’s future may suffer long-term consequences.

But Joe Biden and New Jersey Democrats like Andy Kim, Josh Gottheimer, Tom Malinowski and Mikie Sherrill are too busy kowtowing to the teachers unions that fund their careers to recognize that their refusal to reopen schools is having real-life consequences for New Jersey families:

  • “It was an EVERY DAY meltdown and fight with lots of tears to try to get my almost six year old to get on the computer. It was hard to have him sit there, not fiddle with his thumbs or play with toys while trying to get him to pay attention. The stress on me was taking a toll. I could not keep living my life like this. It was constantly a fight – screaming and yelling. Why was i punishing my son, forcing him to sit in front of a screen all day? I finally had the last straw and withdrew him from the public school system. I now homeschool him and I do not regret my decision one bit! I love the flexibility, the freedom of time and classwork taught, and my relationship with my son can now be repaired. The damage this remote ‘learning’ has done to our kids is a tragedy.” —GINA | NEW JERSEY

New Jersey families deserve better. It’s time for Andy Kim, Josh Gottheimer, Tom Malinowski and Mikie Sherill to stop denying the science and safely reopen schools.
