If you have kids, you probably have a strong opinion about whether your local schools should be opened this fall. Apparently, as Mollie Hemingway points out, so do members of the mainstream media.

Hmmm.

Add in a healthy amount of bashing Betsy DeVos.

Scientific data and anecdotes proclaimed from media ivory towers are only so useful for families and school districts trying to make the most responsible decisions for their respective communities.
