Senate Republican Leader’s Statement on the Governor’s School Order
Governor’s planned executive order is a step in the right direction
SALEM, Ore. – Today the Governor announced plans for an executive order that would bring some certainty to parents and kids who are suffering under school closures.
Senate Republican Leader Fred Girod (R-Lyons) issued the following statement:
“For weeks, Senate Republicans have been standing up for students and families who have been left behind by school closures. Thousands have spoken out, marched, and demonstrated for their education. We elevated their pain and stories that have been ignored for too long.
“The Governor’s planned executive order is a step in the right direction to give our students the education they deserve. It is our responsibility as legislators to ensure the Governor delivers on her promises. We know hybrid instruction still is not the best option for students. We look forward to holding the Governor accountable for returning all of our students to in-person classroom instruction.”
