Renacci Urges Cincinnati and Area Schools to Stay Open for the Sake of Our Children
Wadsworth, OH- “Child Abuse” is what Republican gubernatorial candidate Jim Renacci calls forcing children into isolation by closing schools. Just today Renacci praised Columbus Schools for staying open despite a Teacher’s Union push to close them.
WLWT reports all of Cincinnati schools, and a long list of southwest Ohio schools are going back to remote learning because of Covid-19.
Renacci is calling on Mike DeWine to intervene on behalf of Ohio students.
"If Mike DeWine won't support families and keep these schools open, then he should step aside and let someone who actually cares take the lead.”
Jim Renacci issued the following statement.
“Ohio’s students have suffered enough and the data shows that. Lower test scores, depression, increase in hospital admissions for mental issues are all affecting our kids across the state. Another round of quarantining our kids and isolating them from the social and educational aspect of a brick-and-mortar school day will be devastating.”
Renacci’s choice for Lt. Governor Joe Knopp added.
“I have seen first hand the impact this has had on my own kids. They are socially stunted. They had shown signs of withdrawing and we said enough. Ohioans are not willing to stand by and let our kids suffer. This is why Jim and I are in this fight. Keep our kids in school!”
Renacci says Mike DeWine’s dormant stance on calling out schools for shutting down, along with his public push for Ohio children to be masked 8 hours a day while in school proves that he doesn’t care about Ohio’s future.
