Rep. Jody Hice: Shutting Down Schools Is An Overreaction

On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA) talks about why keeping children out of school and opting for virtual learning can cause difficulties for both parents and the economy.

“You’re going to see schools open up in rural areas, more so than you will in the more urban areas. And I think there’s a reason for that. But even then, the lowest, at risk universe in this whole thing is children. And so I again think, and just my personal opinion, that we’re overreacting by shutting down schools because the ramifications, of shutting down schools, is you can’t open the economy. You have parents and single parents in particular, what are they supposed to do when they have they can’t go to work because they have to stay at home and homeschool their children now? And it’s just, in my opinion, an overreaction to something right now that we can deal with in much more reasonable ways than continuing to shut down the economy and shut down livelihoods.”
