Military Takes a Stand on Schools

( – President Donald Trump and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos want schools to reopen in the fall. And, medical professionals agree with them. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the CDC have both said getting children back into their classrooms is vital to their educational success and their mental health. The Defense Department (DOD) recently announced it’s taking that advice.

According to CNN, Chief Pentagon Spokesperson, Jonathan Hoffman, told reporters the DOD is opening most schools on military bases. Over 110 locations will allow kids to resume in-person learning. However, 43 institutions will start the fall semester virtually because they’re on bases located in areas with high outbreaks.

In early July, DOD Education Activity director Tom Brady said in-person learning will provide “students with stability and continuity.” For parents who are nervous about sending their kids back to the classroom, there will be a virtual option available.

The decision by the DOD is another step toward restoring America to normalcy.
