How some Iowa parents are threatening to defund schools over mask mandates

Hundreds of thousands of dollars are at stake for a suburban Des Moines school district Friday if incensed parents follow through with a plan to artificially lower the district's enrollment numbers.

Ankeny Community School District families angry over a new mask mandate are threatening to unenroll their children from school ahead of the state's Oct. 1 student count date.

The number of students enrolled in a district on that date helps set funding levels for the next school year.

As part of the plan, some parents would then re-enroll their children on Oct. 2, effectively forcing the district to educate their children with less money.

2. Such idiots.

What is wrong with people? Did they even think this through? It seems they want to actually bring harm to their own children. First, by exposing children to the virus and then causing the schools to have less money to provide education and services for their own kids.

You can’t fix stupid.

5. They continue to sacrifice their own children in a ridiculous war against public health.

Using their own children as pawns and weapons.
These people are beyond the pale.
