More Texas families are leaving the public school system.
Public school enrollment continues to fall here in the Lone Star State. Thousands of families aren't happy with how schools are handling the pandemic. Many disagree the schools are coronavirus super-spreaders, and want to send their kids back.
“Most of the cases we see reported in schools have actually come from outside of the schools, they’re not originating or growing in the schools,” Education expert Neal McCluskey told KTRH.
McCluskey, who is also the Director of the Cato Institute’s Center for Educational Freedom, in Washington, said parents are opting for private schools and homeschooling. The pandemic response and a long-running progressive agenda in the classroom have led to thousands more Texas families wanting out.
