Wake County parents urge school board not to require masks, as COVID cases rise in NC

RALEIGH -- Parents clashed over requiring masks in Wake County classrooms Tuesday, with a majority arguing against them as the school year nears close and COVID-19 cases rise.

Seven of 10 speakers urged Wake school board members to make masks optional when students return, and at least a dozen more cheered them from a nearby room as they watched the meeting via a live feed, chanting, “No more masks!”

“Little children can’t see smiles,” said Chanel Marshall, a mental health therapist, her voice breaking. “Little children are dying. They are having suicidal thoughts. I deal with these students every single day. Children need to have these masks removed. It’s not OK.”

Wednesday, Gov. Roy Cooper issued new guidelines for school districts, leaving it to them to issue their own requirements. But the guidelines emphasize that school districts should require masks indoors for all students and staff in elementary and middle schools, regardless of their vaccination status.

2. I am really sick of these ignorant loud mouths. I wonder

How many of these idiots have children, immunocompromised children or are survivors of deceased children.

I am also completely done with treating children like possessions and not little people who sometimes, not unremarkably, are capable of more informed and thoughtful decision making than the so called adults supposed to be responsible for their welfare.

I wonder what the children would decide given an opportunity in a situation where their decisions were valued and void of the pressure forced on them by the so called adults in their lives.

I say ask the children. And while it matters have a few pediatricians weigh in on the subject.
