Parents Are Rallying Together To Re-open School In North Texas

Some North Texas families are organizing rallies in an effort to pressure school districts to re-open to in-person learning during the coronavirus pandemic. Tuesday’s guidance letter from Attorney General Paxton gives them a legal argument.
Several dozen parents and students gathered outside McKinney Independent School District headquarters with signs Tuesday afternoon. A similar protest took place in Frisco last week. Another is planned Thursday outside Plano ISD. All three districts have announced they plan to hold the first three weeks of school online. A letter from the superintendent of McKinney ISD conceded when given a choice, the majority of parents opted for in-person instruction, but in a statement, the district told CBS 11 News its first priority is “the safety of our students and staff.”
