Socialist Dictator-in-Training Tay Anderson has laid down the law over at Denver Public Schools.

We don’t call our own children “students,” but we hear Anderson’s message loud and clear — children who want the public education to which every American child is entitled, live in Tay’s world now.

According to the district’s dress code: “Attire must not disrupt the school’s learning environment. It must meet reasonable standards of cleanliness and show respect for others.”

We would argue that masks disrupt the learning environment, and not all children get clean masks to wear every day — or can keep one clean for five freaking minutes.

And according to leftists publications like The Atlantic, the study relied on by the CDC to claim mask policies reduce the virus’s spread in schools is crap.

The World Health Organization, for example, does not recommend masks for children under age 6. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control recommends against the use of masks for any children in primary school.

Seen in this context, the CDC has taken an especially aggressive stance, recommending that all kids 2 and older should be masked in school. The agency has argued for this policy amid an atmosphere of persistent backlash and skepticism, but on September 26, its director, Rochelle Walensky, marched out a stunning new statistic: Speaking as a guest on CBS’s Face the Nation, she cited a study published two days earlier, which looked at data from about 1,000 public schools in Arizona.


The ones that didn’t have mask mandates, she said, were 3.5 times as likely to experience COVID outbreaks as the ones that did. This estimated effect of mask requirements—far bigger than others in the research literature—would become a crucial talking point in the weeks to come. 


But the Arizona study at the center of the CDC’s back-to-school blitz turns out to have been profoundly misleading.

Now that science on school masks is being unmasked, schools are starting to drop mask mandates.

But not in Denver. Not in Tay’s world.

Enrollment at Denver Public Schools is estimated to decline 6% over the next three years, and that was predicted days before Tay turned into the mask tyrant.

Adams 12, and Cherry Creek school districts have dropped their mandates, and now Jefferson County is letting theirs expire on Feb. 18.

It’s time for Denver to drop the facade as well, and stop allowing clothing to interfere with learning, as per their dress code policy.
