The Department of Education has launched civil rights investigations into five states that have laws banning mask mandates. The states are Iowa, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah.  In Florida, which is not on the list, the education commissioner has announced the state will withhold funding from Broward County and Alachua County Public Schools because their school mask mandates do not have a non-medical opt-out. At a school board meeting in Lee County on masks last night, some in the crowd accused the school board of being “Marxist communist tyrants” who “support child sex trafficking.”
