Maybe school mask protesters should home-school their kids

One of the protesters from the Marysville School Board anti-mask protest carries a sign that read: “We don’t co-parent with the government.” I would suggest, however, that for the 30-plus hours their kids are in school each week, that is *exactly* what they do. But don’t worry, freedom lovers: I have found a solution.

Once the protesters are identified, their kids should be suspended from school for the duration of the school year. This will allow the parents to get the government off their backs while they home-school their children. As an added bonus, the kids won’t have to wear masks while they are home-schooled! This should also result in more civilized school board meetings.

Frankly, I believe its a win-win for both the parents and the school board. The only real losers will be the children.
