* Press release…
The People Who Play By The Rules PAC has launched a new series, “K-12 Parents Speak” featuring parents whose children were severely affected by JB Pritzker’s extreme lockdowns and school closure policies during COVID. An ad buy was placed in statewide media markets and the series is available on the PBR PAC Facebook page.
Parents are making their voices heard loud and clear: They’re our kids, not JB Pritzkers. These are their stories.
First up is Anastasia Andrews, a parent and resident of Barrington, IL:
Anastasia Andrews, Resident / Parent:
“The decisions that Governor Pritzker has made for our state have not been to further our children’s future. The governor mandated school closures for such a long time, and when he did finally open the schools he mandated masks and had this overreaching authority…They’re realizing that the schools’ test scores are down, year over year, nationally, and the entire system was broken.
How much worse does it have to get? Illinois has got to change. Right now.”
Anastasia Andrews, Resident / Parent, Barrington, IL:
“The governor-mandated school shut down in Illinois during COVID severely affected my children. The blank stares…It was horrifying to watch, and then now of course we have a mental health crisis on our hands.
How much worse does it have to get?”
