Private schools sue Oregon over in-person learning restrictions. So a private school that’s in what’s called a white safe zone is not allowed to open. But a public school that’s in a dangerous red zone is. Why?
Horizon Christian School in Hood River, McMinnville Christian Academy, and Life Christian School in Aloha are participating in the suit, which claims Gov. Kate Brown hasn’t proven why universities can open with safety measures but churches hosting large gatherings cannot. Why?
Can it be that parents are pulling their students out of the public schools? The governor, the suit argues, hasn’t given any reason why COVID-19 would spread more quickly at a religious gathering than inside a university classroom, which currently is allowed to open to college students when following safety guidelines.
