Nexstar: GOP Lawmakers Push to Reopen Schools

Written by Press Release

February 25, 2021

“Parents can see that virtual learning simply isn’t working,” said Sen. John Boozman, R-AR. 

Boozman reports nearly 70 percent of his state’s public school students have returned to the classroom, despite different COVID-19 challenges in each district.

“They moved ahead with the same goal: finding the best and the safest way to get and keep children and teachers in the classroom,” Boozman said.
