Randy Rainbow’s latest and maybe his best:
A very welcome email landed in the inbox Tuesday evening. Not sure why I was on the list, but I was tickled to death (pun sort of intended) to see that the ISEA and the Iowa City CSD were suing the state of Iowa alleging that Kim Reynolds has overstepped her authority by requiring school districts to primarily hold in-person classes.
Very welcome lawsuit! Reynolds created some very artificial – and nearly impossible to reach – criteria before schools could then APPLY to do remote learning. Her goal is to force all students and teachers back into small rooms where this highly, highly transmittable disease would most likely be spread quickly. As far as we know the only reason for this is to please Donald Trump.
The lawsuit is especially welcome now that a case reporting glitch has been discovered that makes the data decisions to open and close schools suspect.
Reynolds, like Trump, seems to screw up nearly everything she touches. She is also getting very experienced at dodging questions just like Trump.
