Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos made the case for why schools need to be fully reopened in the fall, while appearing on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday.

President Trump and Secretary DeVos have been putting pressure on schools across the country to be open for in-person instruction this fall after the coronavirus pandemic forced them to shut down and resort to remote teaching options to finish out the remainder of last school year.

DeVos told CNN’s Dana Bash that “the CDC has been very clear to say they never recommended schools close down in the first place. And they are very much of the posture that kids need to be back in school for a multitude of reasons.”

“The American Academy of Pediatrics has said the same thing,” she added.
We must reopen the schools next fall!

“Kids need to be in school. They need to be learning,” DeVos said. “They need to be moving ahead…we cannot be paralyzed and not allow that or not be intent on that happening.” Video Below


Moments later, DeVos said, “Kids have got to be learning full time and have the expectation that the next school year is going to give them at least a school year’s worth of learning, if not more, because so many of them fell behind.”
