She further stated: “My concern is the repeated use of should and shall which becomes
mandated in policies and practice. Why aren’t these just recommendations that rely on the
parents and the different school administration to determine what is best for their districts?”
“Meanwhile the focus is solely on COVID-19 while there are other issues and concerns that are
confronting the state. Such as the short fall in revenue because of the controlling practices by
this administration.” Testerman added.
