Charlotte, N.C. – It would appear that American children, who make up one-fifth of our nation’s population, are being forgotten in today’s coronavirus vaccine implementation strategy. Since spring, President Trump and many medical experts worldwide have reported that children and their immune systems are more resilient to infection from COVID-19.
Liberal legislators from Washington D.C. and across America have kept children out of their classrooms, leading to increased anxiety and depression and a massive surge in school dropout rates. This week, states reported an enormous surge in high school student dropouts.
Nationwide, 15% of high school students failed to graduate on time during the 2016-2017 school year. Iowa had the lowest percentage of students not graduating on time, with a rate of 9%, closely followed by New Jersey at 9.5%. According to Henrietta Fore, Executive Director of the United Nations Children’s Fund, COVID-19 threatens to derail the education of at least 24 million students projected to drop out of school worldwide as a result.
Locations throughout the United States, as a result of COVID-19 school closures, communities, mostly the impoverished, have also seen a spike in suicide rates. Suicide in the United States is the 2nd leading cause of death in youth ages 10-24, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Children and their parents desperately want to see their kids back in their classrooms and safe from COVID – both are achievable by ensuring a safe and working vaccine and tried and testing on children. Unfortunately, none of the newly released vaccines have proven results for adolescents.
This week, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, acknowledged it is going to take time, perhaps even months, before those younger than 18 can get a coronavirus vaccine, as trials to test the vaccine candidates’ immunogenicity are either underway or have yet to begin.
When President Trump stated children maintain the ability to fight off coronavirus, Democrats and liberal-led legislators publically shamed him. When the president advocated keeping schools open, members of the left and Democratic governors and mayors rebuked him. They unilaterally made decisions to close the doors of schools and educational centers. For the members of the left, children were just as susceptible to contract COVID-19. And for that reason, they were to be removed from their classrooms immediately.
Now, the same liberal legislators have no plan and no thought of how to protect childhood pupils across the United States, other than to continue down a path of educational isolation, increasing the medical and social death of children across America.
