****STATEMENT***Smiley Calls For Kids In Classrooms
The “Crystal Ball” Is Clear When It Comes To School Reopening
PASCO, WA – United States Senate candidate Tiffany Smiley responded to Biden Administration officials claims that they “can’t look in a crystal ball” and predict if students will return to the classroom this fall.
Tiffany Smiley said: “We have been dealing with this pandemic for more than a year and we have learned what does and does not work, and the CDC’s own guidelines are clear – our kids can safely return to the classroom. There has been a 90% increase in self-harm claims by our teenagers and a 95% increase in teen drug overdose claims during the pandemic, and Biden Administration’s continued tap dance needs to stop.”
“Senator Murray is literally the chairwoman of the Senate committee with oversight of our educational system, yet her silence on school reopenings has been deafening. For the sake of Washington State children, it’s time for Senator Murray to put her time as a career politician to work and fight for our children. An entire generation is waiting,” concluded Smiley.
Continued school closures and forced distance learning has had a devasting impact on American children. A recent study from FAIR Health shows that there has been a 90% spike in self-harm claims among American teenagers and a 95% increase in teen drug overdose claims during the pandemic. Meanwhile, the CDC’s own recommendations show that student can safely return to the classroom.
However, during an appearance this Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Biden advisor Anita Dunn was asked if parents could expect their children to return to the classroom this fall. In response, Dunn said: “We can’t look in a crystal ball and say what September looks like.”
