Mike Pence may not have actually said that, but for some reason schools are being pushed as sort of all-purpose care providers. Perhaps it is just a matter of people not being clear about proper functions. Psychological damage and mental health seem to be new found concerns. Trying to get ahead of the curve? Trump is going back to Walter Reed.
Is cognitive deterioration going to be an excuse to transfer authority to Pence as a last ditch effort to salvage Republican control? Is cognitive disability going to save him from the hoosgow?
What Pence actually said was “it’s important that the American people remember that for children that have mental health issues, for special needs children, for nutrition for children in communities facing persistent poverty, the school is the place where they receive all those services.”
Was there anyone there to question why that is? Why parents taking care of their children are not supported with enough money for food, medical care, clothing, transportation and shelter? Why are social services being delivered in schools and by the police? You’d almost think we are living in a communist state.
