Arizona – Parents took over a Vail School District board meeting this week to protest the mask mandate for children.
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey lifted the statewide mask mandate for schools last summer, but the Vail Unified School District kept the mandate in place anyway.
Board members were planning on reviewing the mask mandate on Tuesday when angry parents made their way into the building and crashed the study session, KGUN-TV reported.
Pima County Sheriffs showed up to the school to help keep the order.
The school board members couldn’t take the heat so they canceled their meeting and took off like cowards.
They wouldn’t even face the parents.
“Let our children breathe!” the protesters chanted.
“They do not have the right to take this away from us! These are our kids!” a mother said.
“We’re hearing they’ve all quit!” one parent said before the group held their own impromptu election and struck down the mask mandate.
