LMBC NEWS – President Donald Trump has disagreed to Los Angeles Unified Schools District decision to not reopen in-person learning this fall.

In an interview with CBS News, Trump has called the move of Los Angeles schools as a “terrible decision.”

He also left advice to parents and teachers who are against physical reporting to schools.

I would tell parents and teachers that you should find yourself a new person whoever’s in charge of that decision because it’s a terrible decision,” he said.

 “Children and parents are dying from that trauma too. They’re dying because they can’t do what they’re doing. Mothers can’t go to work all of a sudden and they have to stay home and watch their child, and fathers. There’s a tremendous strain on that whole side of the equation,” he continued.

On Monday, Los Angeles Unified School District superintendent Austin Beutner confirmed in a statement that the students will not report on a physical campus for the academic year 2020-2021.

Beutner said the school community cannot just compromise the health and safety of its students and staff.

He also suggested that the Federal government could help by providing the needs of the schools to make the return of the students safe.

As of Tuesday, California has recorded 343, 714 confirmed Covid-19 cases and 7, 214 deaths.
