Statement on the Closure of New York City Schools

By November 19, 2020No Comments

The New York Young Republican Club condemns the cowardly decision by Democrat government officials to close New York City schools. Cuomo, De Blasio, and Carranza once again demonstrate their obsequious nature by serving teachers’ unions’ interests rather than students.

Numerous studies and basic observations demonstrate that children learn both academically and socially when they are in a classroom with their peers. In addition, no empirical evidence has shown children to be major vectors for the spread of the China Virus.

Democrats’ pandering to teacher unions will have a material impact on students’ education. It will likely disproportionately harm those who belong to the impoverished communities that the Democrats claim to support. In addition, these same children’s families will struggle to find childcare to enable parents to work.

This pathetic situation underscores Democrats’ vile disinterest in providing for their citizens and proves that they will prioritize entrenched and corrupt organized labor over children.
