By Kristi Shaffer   |   09.10.21
Governor JB Pritzker recently issued Executive Order 2021-20 Covid-19 Executive Order No 87 , a mandate to mask while indoors. This mandate went into effect on August 30, 2021.

In section 6 subsection b, the governor states that either the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) or Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) may require testing more often than is currently designated by the executive order for both staff and students. The state intends to use the ISBE to enforce its mandates on schools.

There is no denying that it is God's command to train up a child in the way he should go.
