GOP governors: White House schoolyard brawl tests limits of local control
August 27, 2021
A turf war between Republican governors and the White House over masking in schools is testing the limits of local control.
Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is offering vouchers and federal money to schools and parents that reject face coverings. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is threatening the salaries of school officials who mandate masks. And Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is fighting both mask and vaccine mandates in court.
Now President Joe Biden has stepped into the fray.
