Kentucky Gov. Beshear backs schools opting to start with online learning

WLWT Cincinnati |

On Tuesday, he said school district leaders should carefully review virus data when deciding whether to return students and teachers to classrooms.

“And if they believe it’s in their best interests — and the best interests of their kids and the best interests of their teachers — to give it a little more time, I certainly understand that,” Beshear said. “And I want to be supportive of those superintendents who make that decision that they need a few more weeks or that they’re going to start with an online platform.”

The governor recently recommended that public and private schools wait until at least the third week of August to resume in-person classes to help curb the spread of the virus.
