Ignoring the impact of race and racism in history doesn't make it go away; it just makes you ignorant.

White people are evil and privileged, especially conservative, Christian, heterosexual white males, they are the worst. White people need to be guilt tripped from an early age that they need to give back to liberals and all people of color. CRT makes whites easier to control so don't fight back.

What an astonishingly racist comment.

This is true Harry. And only a liberal can understand this. lol. Those of us that are Veterans, know this more than anyone else. Tomorrow is Veterans Day. All Americans should celebrate accordingly.

I believe today's high school students can handle the information and, hopefully, it will affect their leadership for the future.

Todays high school students are the weakest, most self centered, most brain washed students ever. Most can't maintain a thought for more than ten seconds.

If you had a history class, you know how terrible the US treated other races and ethnicities. The only difference is a lot of things were left out, like the Oklahoma massacre. Of course it affected our laws & institutions. This is not a new concept.

This continual focus on race is taking us back to a segregated, dark, racist place. It needs to stop.

It's part of the Democratic plan to maintain hate and racism, thereby keeping the slaves on the welfare plantation. They don't mind putting white people on the plantation either, as long as they have a plantation, where hate and discontent can be maintained.

We are teaching children they are oppressed or oppressors based solely on skin color. That is the definition of racism. This country is going backwards with CRT and promoting hate and racism against white people mind blowing madness!

Because it is a racist and goes against the fundamentals of equality.

Then please, please continue to not wear a mask. Get covid. Need hospitalization. Put your family and friends through it. Make the hospital staff issues even worse. Eventually die. Thin the heard

It is time for the panicked, fear mongering, over-reaching, non-science backed COVID polices to end. CDC says fabric masks don't work. S Africa scientists say booster shots, even continuous IV booster drip, are not effective on Omicron. END all COVID .gov enforcement NOW. AG must sue the tyrants.

Actually, he should sue the individuals that make this decision, not the schools. The students and the taxpayers should not be punished for the actions of other peoples stupidity.

Parental rights and the students rights are at stake. No school board member has the right over legislators to force this. Missouri’s emergency is over. The alarmists need to start moving on to saving our country from Brandon.

Sheeple can't function, without constant guidance, and their ceremonial masks, and other forms of safety equipment, such as hand sanitizers, etc., etc....

Before forcing students to wear masks they should do online learning. The bottom line is the virus is not any deadlier than the flu for young people. If teachers want to wear a mask do so, but there should be no mandate.

Let the people in each individual district who know the conditions in that district make decisions for them. Politicians need to stop interjecting where thy do not belong just to further their career. It appears they have no regard for what is best for the people. Shameful

He should not be wasting the state's funds for this. The school administrations know what is best for them and their schools. These are different times. Our children should remain safe, as deemed necessary to the current situations.

Let the schools handle what is best for them. He is only doing it for his own political gain while running for Senate. I would think he would have more urgent matters to handle than attacking our schools.

CPS has no legal authority to continue fear-mongering. Cloth masks, the vaxes don’t work, online learning stunts learning and developmental stages, but keep living in fear if it makes you feel better. Mass Formation Psychosis is real. Eric Schmitt does a great job!

He needs to keep his nose out of this. Thank goodness the local schools have enough sense to do what needs to be done and keep our kids safe. Learning from home and being healthy is far better than being in an unhealthy environment and potentially making others seriously ill

The Attorney General threats of suing school districts, who are trying to better control illness at their LOCAL LEVEL, should be considered overreach. And any school district who is sued should successfully sue the attorney general’s office for any expenses/damages arising from spread of disease.

Doesn't Mr. Schmitt have more important work to do than interfere with schools that are trying to make it safer for their students and staff so they might avoid having to resort to virtual learning.

Let the schools decide about mask mandates. Schmitt is only getting involved in this for political reasons. He should be fighting crime, not high schools

I hope they don`t plan on sending out a lot of these phone alerts. The weather alerts they put on TV constantly warning us that it`s raining in Joplin are annoying enough//

I was actually entertaining Barbara Gordan when she got a test message and had to suddenly leave. That's when I heard the sound of the Bat Phone ringing in my study. It was Barb's Dad, he said the Joker was spotted putting higher price tags on smaller items at the local stores. To the Bat Cave...
