Baron Trump’s School Not allowed To Meet In Person Until Oct 1
President Donald Trump is failing in forcing schools to reopen and that includes Baron’s private school. Baron attends St. Andrew’s Episcopal School and the school has been ordered by Montgomery County to not hold in-person class sessions until October 1. According to Montgomery County Health Officer, Dr. Travis Gayles revealed that whether schools in the county will start meeting in person will be decided before Oct 1.
Gayles said the decision stemmed from the recent increase in infections from the virus and the concern of it spreading between kids. He said on Friday, “Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have based our decisions on science and data.” He added, “At this point the data does not suggest that in-person instruction is safe for students or teachers.”
Many would say that Dr. Gayles is right to be concerned since at least one student in Indiana has already contracted the virus causing many students and teachers to be quarantined. The school year at St. Andrew’s is set to begin on Sept. 8 but it looks like distance learning is the school’s only option.
President Trump has been pushing for schools to fully open despite the danger presented by the coronavirus. Education Secretary, Betsy Devos, has also been demanding that schools and universities fully reopen this fall despite resistance from many Americans. Trump believes that distance learning is hurting children.
Many parents have already decided that their kids will not attend in-person classes even if their child’s school can. We will see what happens.
