Sen. Ted Cruz and other Republicans excoriated Democrats and the government after a report found an estimated 3 million children have “fallen off the grid” and are not showing up to their virtual classes.
“Three…million…kids. Fallen off the grid. Abandoned. Dem politicians are fine with it — want it to continue indefinitely,” Cruz tweeted on Tuesday. “Enough. #OpenSchoolsNow.”
Cruz was responding to a report that approximately 3 million students may have gone “missing” from school since last March when schools were locked down over the coronavirus.
