Governor Larry Hogan today issued the following statement welcoming the Maryland State Board of Education’s unanimous vote requiring Maryland school systems to offer full in-person learning for the 2021-22 school year:

“The science supports getting our children back into school for in-person learning, and every student in Maryland should have that opportunity right now. To encourage the safe reopening of schools, the state has committed more than $1.2 billion in funding, prioritized teachers for vaccines, and provided all the necessary PPE, testing, and guidance. Families and students deserve certainty that all school systems will return to full in-person learning. To address the academic and emotional toll of prolonged online instruction, today’s vote is an important step toward getting things back to normal.”

  1. What??!
    They are forcing kids to go back to school?
    Am curious just what science this is that supports their actions. I dug around but couldnt find this. I’ve also seen nations that reopened schools that were unprepared later shut them down.
