The highest courts in the land are very important to our personal liberties.
Whether it’s the federal court system or state courts, what they decide can have a big impact on millions.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court just delivered a decision that many other states will be watching.
They ruled on whether private schools can reopen during the COVID panic.
It was a close decision, 4-3:
Dane County health officials cannot prohibit private schools from holding in-person classes until the state Supreme Court makes a formal decision on the matter.
In a 4-3 ruling Thursday, the court issued an injunction temporarily blocking a Dane County emergency health order that sharply limited in-person instruction and agreed to hear the case.
The court decided that Dane County health officials cannot stop private schools from opening.
The ruling put a temporary injunction on the country’s order that limited in-person instruction.
This means, the court will hear the case and make a final, permanent decision in the coming weeks.
Private schools are not funded or controlled by the government. So, it appears the court is granting private schools a measure of liberty from the country’s strict COVID restrictions.
This could have a tremendous impact across Wisconsin and other states.
We’ve all seen how far local and state governments have gone to limit Americans’ liberties during the pandemic.
Children (who face the least threat from the disease) appear to have suffered the most.
Their previous school year was cut short. And in many (Democratic-run) states, children are unable to attend regular school.
Many experts have revealed how damaging it has been for children to be forced into their homes for this much time.
They’ve been cut off from healthy relationships with people outside their immediate family.
Not to mention how these restrictions have derailed their education.
Many states have rolled out reopening plans, allowing students to slowly return to a some-what normal educational experience.
Yet in some states, it seems Democrats refuse to prioritize the well-being of children over teachers’ unions.
- Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled to block an injunction against private schools.
- Private schools will not be required to follow country restrictions.
- The court will hear the full case and decide on a permanent decision.
