“If it’s safe for the kids to go back, why can’t the parents come to school board meetings,” asked Leana Derrick with Call to Action New Mexico.
They say having access limited to Zoom right now is not enough for parents to participate in the process. Organizers say they would like a better platform to express concerns about issues like vaccine requirements and how wearing masks might affect learning.
