Hartzler in the Columbia Daily Tribune: It's Time for Students to Return to the Classroom
In this morning's Columbia Daily Tribune, Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-04) advocated for local school boards and communities to reopen schools this fall in a safe, sustainable way.
As a mother and a former teacher, I understand firsthand how important the school environment is for the well-being and development of our students, as well as our absolute desire to keep our kids safe. In the classroom, I witnessed the importance of these school services for children and saw students who relied on school for their sense of purpose, source of nutrition and place of stability. That is something worth fighting to protect, Hartzler wrote.
