“Democrat Governor Tim Walz continues to lead this state unilaterally, circumventing the state legislature to make decisions impacting all Minnesotans. Today the Governor exhibited another overreach of power in making decisions about our children’s education by himself. The realities of balancing parenting with employment, impact every parent in our state.

“Parents and pediatricians overwhelmingly want schools to open, and it is important we get to that goal full-time for all students. Local control is local control – not Governor Walz’s strict framework that could impede the education of our children. It is time for Governor Walz to step back from his unilateral decision-making and let those in our communities make the decisions that suit them best.
