PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – With a new school year just weeks away in Miami-Dade and Broward, emergency rules set on Friday by the Florida Board of Education became the latest salvos in the cash over masking.
The new rule says that a parent who doesn’t want his or her child to wear a mask at school can opt out, if masks are required.
And if they are required, that parent can complain of “harassment” and ask for a “Hope Scholarship” voucher to enroll their child in a private school.
It’s one more complication just as classes are set to begin.
Alberto Carvalho is the Superintendent of Miami-Dade Public Schools and he joined This Week in South Florida hosts Michael Putney and Glenna Milberg to discuss.
