Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, hundreds of parents have informed Killeen ISD that they prefer to keep their children enrolled in a virtual learning setting.

“As we prepare for the 2021-2022 school year, we have been collecting enrollment data that will be presented to include instructional modality preferences,” the agenda states. “This will be an opportunity to discuss future plans regarding in-person and virtual learning opportunities for students.”

If these parents want to continue doing virtual learning THEY need to provide the computers needed instead of taxpayers having to pay for them. Are these computers being taken care of or are they being broken and destroyed so kids can PLAY on them? Who pays for these computers? TAXPAYERS. Might as well homeschool your children and pay for it yourself.
