Study: Red States Protected Working-Class Minority Children Against Dems’ Covid Overreach:
While blue states floundered to resume classroom learning for large swaths of students, Republican-led states protected working-class, minority children against the severe learning losses caused by Democrats’ Covid-19 overreach by encouraging classroom teaching, new data suggests.
According to a study conducted by Harvard University’s Center for Education Policy Research, students in low-income areas suffered years worth of academic depletion, especially in math, after spending larger amounts of time in remote learning.
“Within school districts that were remote for most of 2020-21, high-poverty schools experienced 50 percent more achievement loss than low-poverty schools,” the study noted.
All students suffered educationally during the pandemic due to forced remote learning. Ultimately, however, it was the low-income, minority kids who suffered the most. While red states eagerly ushered kids of all backgrounds back to school, blue states led by Democrats campaigning on solving racial inequality kept impoverished black and Hispanic children at home, thus widening learning gaps between vulnerable, low-income students and high-income students. --->READ MORE HERE

Bill to overturn Biden’s toddler mask mandate clears Senate with Democratic support:
Seven Democrats joined GOP senators in voting for a resolution to overturn President Joe Biden’s mask mandate for toddlers.
The bill that would end current face mask requirements for children 2 years old and older in Head Start facilities cleared the Senate on Tuesday in a 55-41 vote.
The Democratic senators who voted with Republicans to pass the resolution include Catherine Cortez Masto (NV), Mark Kelly (AZ), Jon Ossoff (GA), Joe Manchin (WV), Jacky Rosen (NV), Kyrsten Sinema (AZ), and Jon Tester (MT).
Sen. John Thune (R-SD) sponsored the resolution and, prior to the vote, told his colleagues, “It’s past time to call a halt to the Biden administration’s outdated and unscientific mandate to ensure that our toddlers can run around the playground mask-free.” --->WATCH and READ MORE HERE
