The home page of the Springfield News-Leader has three headlines about Springfield Public Schools:
- SPS closed Monday, switching to virtual learning Tuesday to Friday
- Springfield school board could bring back mask mandate at Jan. 28 meeting
- Enrollment drop casts a shadow over Springfield Public Schools’ budget for 2022-23
Given that the Attorney General / Senate Candidate Eric Schmitt has said he’ll sue school districts that impose mask mandates, their legal costs in the next year are about to go up, too.
I am sure professional educational administrators think that their actions make sense and lead to positive outcomes, but I am not sure the actual outcomes back this up.
