Shirley Elem’s students, parents, and staff are DEMANDING that #citizensoftheworldcharter and board members like Josh Mclaughlin put the health and safety of all students first. Co-locating a school during a pandemic is extremely reckless. #Covid19 #pandemicprofiteers https://t.co/9wUxEnvmxU

#CitizensOfTheWorldCharter had a meeting today to get the keys to a co-location at Shirley. The last thing we should be doing during a pandemic is bringing another 200 students on campus! This will overcrowd the campus #healthandsafetyfirst #COVID19 <a href="https://t.co/579aE7ORLf" target="_blank"...
