Battle between Murphy and the School Districts

In June there was an outcry from school districts to have Governor Murphy end the mask mandate in schools. By July, Murphy decided to end the school mask mandate stating “I remain comfortable with where we are,” at a press briefing July 19.  When given the power of home rule, NJ school districts took it upon themselves to do the best for their students and write mask-optional return plans for September. As of Friday, August 6, 2021, Murphy has put the mandate back in place to quell the mounting opposition to masking in school.  Schools are now calling out yet again to Murphy to make their districts mask-optional. Districts know wearing a mask for 6 to 9 hours a day is not in the best interest of the health of the chidlren and these decisions must be left up to the parents. We are keeing track of this yo-yo game between Murphy and the school districts in the fight for parental rights.

The bold move that caused Murphy to revise his EO to

prevent parents from writing notes to stop masks for their children.
