Parents from four families of children enrolled in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) are suing the district and the city’s teachers union because they have refused to reopen the schools – under the pretense it would be unsafe due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
California is currently in the process of trying to oust its ultra-left governor, Gavin Newsom, after the extensive damage to the state by his enforcement of strict lockdown measures. But the state is also seeing irreparable harm done to its youth via continued widespread school closures that have had numerous ill effects on millions of children.
In March 2020, the deep-blue Golden State beat out all other states to become the first to issue a statewide lockdown after the first surge of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths hit the United States, with other states soon following California’s lead, according to TheBlaze.
The plaintiffs’ attorney, Timothy Snowball – litigation counsel for Freedom Foundation – filed suit last week against the LAUSD, the United Teachers Los Angeles union (UTLA) and its president, Cecily Myart-Cruz. The lawsuit alleges the district and union are essentially keeping students hostage away from schools for reasons that have nothing to do with the COVID-19 pandemic – and everything to do with forwarding their political agenda.
