Karen Perez of District 5 of the Hillsborough County School Board in Tampa, Florida says she has parents of students calling telling her that students are afraid to eat at lunch because they are sitting so close to others.

Um. Where dey do that at?

What I have seen at lunch is kids sitting spaced out, but voluntarily getting all up in one another’s space because it is one of their only times to be…kids. These kids are having a damn great time at lunch, especially when the adults are not circling them like vultures waiting to police them about safety protocols.

If your kid is scared at lunch, you did that to them…and maybe the school staff did, too. Boy, these kids are gonna be so fucked up!

School District member Nadia T. Combs of District 1 references Miami-Dade and Broward Counties “breaking the law” to support her opinion that students and staff should be 100% masked (The “law” in question is referring to DeSantis order that schools in Florida not mandate masks.) Let us remember that Hillsborough County Schools doesn’t care about breaking the law. It is in their blood. The District continued to allow school segregation for several years past Brown v Board of Education (maybe 9 year, I cannot remember). The first Black Board member didn’t exist in Hillsborough County until the 1980s.

If you thought education wasn’t political, you have been asleep. All of it is politics — before coronavirus, and forever more.

Melissa Snively, Board Member of District 4, you are in a league of your own.
