with the school year quickly approaching and President Trump pushing hard for schools to reopen lots of parents have strong feelings one way or the other about the matter. Let’s check out some of the tweets popping up over this one.
This is what the CDC graph of ‘new cases per day’ will look like next week, now that hospitals have been ordered to send data directly to the White House instead of to the CDC. #NotMyChild pic.twitter.com/OQ0uZy0Fyg— Jane M (@janemartin264) July 16, 2020
It’ll probably look worse knowing the White house…
Extremely valid point…
#NotMyChild Please, people, let’s use this trending hashtag to pressure Congress to provide internet access to EVERY child. It’s criminal for children to be denied education because their parents can’t afford rent, insurance AND internet access. #LivingWages #EducationForAll— Andy Lee Parker (He, She, Not It) (@AndyLeeParker1) July 16, 2020
In some areas, like where I live, there just isn’t internet available regardless of if you can afford it or not, best you can get for speeds where I live is around 1.5 Mbps…it’s an issue in this country not many realize exists.
Some people want to increase the risk of their child incubating bacteria and increase their risk of infection by being anti-science and advocating for cloth masks which turn your child’s face into a bacteria infested petri dish.— Critical Thinking 101 (@critica18495985) July 16, 2020
Misinformation is more dangerous than no information.

The words risk and children should never be in the same sentence, our children are much more important than lining the pockets of the 1%. It’s not just about the kids either, it’s about who those children might bring a sickness home to.
You got it. I’m not a mother but I have nephews and nieces. Little ones. This has really pissed me off. #NotMyChild— Alexis 🇨🇦 🇺🇸 (@ABTudorQueen) July 16, 2020
Even people who are not parents should want to protect our children, they’re the future of this planet not us.
The wrong people may just be making decisions about what is best for YOUR child.
What are your thoughts? Will you be sending your kid back to school if it’s open?
