Comments:

Why are we as a state still spending time and money on testing for COVID in our public and charter school classrooms when we all know that even at its peak, COVID did not pose a serious threat to the health of our students regardless of age or grade level. And even for teachers and staff, testing was little more than a show having no real impact on stopping the virus. We need to get back to education and stop living in fear.
