Biden To Ensure Mask Mandates In Schools By Force

The Biden administration reportedly plans to invoke the Department of Education's civil rights enforcement arm to require the use of masks in schools, The New York Times reports.

Elected officials in several states have opted to make mask mandates illegal, warning that the decision should be left to parents and guardians despite guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommending a return to universal masking in schools as the delta variant and vaccine hesitancy fueled a summer coronavirus spike.

In Florida, school administrators risk losing state funding if they violate a ban on mask mandates enacted by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis in late July. GOP Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine will not require masks in schools, and South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster (R) announced recently that the state could not follow the CDC's updated guidance because a new state law bars schools that receive funds from requiring masks.
