This story is hard for me as I am increasingly becoming more of an anti-public education advocate.
These union-controlled Marxist portals called public schools are forcing millions of children through the system annually, with tens of thousands of them handed high school graduation diplomas but are not prepared to be productive US citizens.
Some in the education system and politicians have come to the conclusion that when parents drop their children off at local schools, the state takes over superseding the children’s parents’ authority while in their facilities.
Under the guise of combatting the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Phil Scott of Vermont is now directing schools to interrogate students about what they did on Thanksgiving. He wants to know if they had a large family gathering.
And who is the governor requiring to put on a second hat as private investigators? School employees such as teachers, counselors, and administrators.

Vermont Governor Instructs Schools To Interrogate Students About Family Thanksgiving Gatherings
Vermont Gov. Phil Scott is giving schools the green light to interrogate students about their Thanksgiving activities following the break.
According to Scott, students or parents who admit to violating the state’s holiday travel and gathering rules will be forced to participate in online school for two weeks, he announced via Twitter on Tuesday. The penalty will be reduced to one week if the students in question take a COVID-19 test.
The same quarantine method, Scott claimed, should apply to businesses whose employees decide to celebrate the Thanksgiving holidays with friends and family.
“This isn’t a way around the ban or an excuse to get together,” he wrote. “The more we adhere to this policy, the faster we’ll lower case counts & ease up on restrictions.”

So what happens if interrogating the children and parents don’t produce the desired results?
Scott threatened during a press conference on Tuesday, that he has “a lot of tools in the toolbox” and could use them if the virus continues to spread in his state.
Yes, a Republican Governor sounds just a far-left globalist, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown.
She encouraged citizens to call the police on their neighbors who violate her latest executive order, which includes a six-person limit from two households maximum on in-home gatherings. Anyone who violates Brown’s orders this Thanksgiving could face misdemeanor penalties of up to 30 days in jail, fines of up to $1,250, or both.
