Schools become COVID-19 battleground

Schools have become the latest battleground in the fight over coronavirus safety.

As the delta variant continues spreading rapidly across the country causing a new wave of infections and hospitalizations, it is sending school administrators scrambling to adjust reopening plans.

Schools will open in the next weeks, but there’s no national consensus on how to keep classrooms safe, raising questions and conflicts for the nation’s teachers, parents and school boards.

Local districts in Florida, Arizona and Texas are at war with their GOP governors over the refusal to allow mask requirements.
