PHOENIX (AP) - Schools should maintain options for parents whether they prefer in-person or online instruction for their children, Gov. Doug Ducey said Thursday as the state sees an uptick in newly confirmed virus cases.

"We want to provide those options to our kids and families," Ducey said after touring a Phoenix charter school with U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. "We think options are very important."

"It's important not only academically, but for their social and emotional growth, for their mental health," DeVos said. "I really applaud the governor's leadership here, acknowledging that kids need to be learning."
