Lewis Demands Property Tax Payments are Refunded

EAGAN, MINNESOTA  ~~~  July 8, 2020  (LSN)  U.S. Senate candidate Jason Lewis released the following statement calling for the Minnesota Department of Education to urge schools to reopen for the 2020-21 academic year.

“The more we learn about COVID, the more it becomes apparent that we have done a huge disservice to our children in the way we have handled this virus. Research has proven that COVID presents minimal risks to young people. But what isn’t minimal is the toll this prolonged lockdown and social isolation has on our kids’ social, mental, and physical well-being. Quality of education has declined, crisis hotlines are seeing their phones explode, high school seniors have missed graduations, and kids have had to forgo their favorite sports—the impact of long-term at-home learning is far more detrimental than some of our public health experts would have us believe. 

There is no rational reason to keep kids out of schools this fall, and those who continue to hinder this do not have our kids’ best interest in mind. It is unconscionable what we have deliberately done to young people. But don’t just take my word for it. Medical professionals, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, have come out in support of reopening schools this fall. That’s why I’m calling for the Minnesota Department of Education and the Minnesota Department of Health to urge school districts move forward with reopening plans for the upcoming school year. Virtual learning won’t cut it. If schools are not allowed to reopen, parents and students should be refunded their tuition or property taxes. Failure to do so is a breach of contract 

It’s time to stop shortchanging our students and ripping off taxpayers and parents. The well-being of our kids depends on it.”
