United States President Donald Trump has again insisted on schools reopening despite the country having more than five million cases and more than 166,000 deaths. He has announced the delivery of 125 million reusable masks to various school districts across the country.
Speaking at the White House, Trump announced that the government “is ready to deploy security teams to assist open schools and those who need help to reopen safely”.
The President of the United States has also returned to defer the idea of federal funds being withdrawn from schools that decide not to reopen because “the money should follow the student”.
“If the school stays closed but the federal money ends up in the school and the student goes to another student, the money should follow the student,” said Trump, who has also questioned the method some schools have suggested to the schools switch. Face-to-face and distance learning.
