Imagine your child’s school without a nurse. Without vision and hearing screenings. Imagine high school sporting events without a certified athletic trainer on-site to assess injuries. Think of all the ways Blue Valley Schools’ trained counselors, social workers, and school psychologists support the well-being of students and their families. Consider how a student who needs daily medical care - or a student with mental health challenges - might impact the learning of those around them if these vital health care supports aren’t available at school.
Who **opposes** “health care” in our public schools? Moms For Liberty. This national astroturf organization promotes School Board candidates across America, including four running here in Blue Valley. Stripping public schools of essential services makes it easier for to increase community support for vouchers and the privatization of K-12 schools.
We’ve already seen Moms For Liberty’s Blue Valley School Board member Jim McMullen vote **against** the district’s Social Worker contract with Children’s Mercy Hospital. McMullen is endorsing the same four Blue Valley School Board candidates that Moms For Liberty is promoting here locally. Nobody should be surprised by what happens to our kids’ schools IF those candidates win.
Having key health care supports in our schools creates a better learning environment for ALL students. These supports can literally make the difference between life and death.
