What To Know: It turns out, kids have been pretty safe from COVID-19 all along; it’s less risky to children than the flu. That’s not a conspiracy theory; that’s the conclusion of the New Yorker magazine.

The TPPF Take: Government-imposed school shutdowns and protocols dictated by teachers unions have harmed our children far more than we yet realize. That’s why school choice—and parental empowerment—is more important than ever.

“Texas remains one of the worst states in the country for parent empowerment, providing among the fewest educational options for families. Public school choice through open enrollment is severely limited,” says TPPF’s Richard Johnson. “And unlike the majority of states, including three of our neighbors, private school choice is non-existent in Texas.”
