Ah, Texas!

Gotta give the lonely star a hat tip for this:

A Texas School Made Masks Part Of Its Dress Code To Get Around Gov. Abbott’s Ban

The Paris Independent School District will now require students to wear masks as part of its dress code.

The Paris ISD board of trustees said in a statement that it “believes the dress code can be used to mitigate communicable health issues” and amended it accordingly to protect the district’s students and employees.

“The Texas Governor does not have the authority to usurp the Board of Trustees’ exclusive power and duty to govern and oversee the management of the public schools of the district,” it continued.

“Nothing in the Governor’s Executive Order 38 states he has suspended Chapter 11 of the Texas Education Code, and therefore the Board has elected to amend its dress code consistent with its statutory authority.”

I’d like to think that a student/future lawyer came up with this idea, but I’ll take it regardless. Talk about turning your oppression into your superpower!

    Surprising really. Paris is up around Dallas, and they’re not exactly famous for neurons firing in the ‘ol cranium area, if you know what I mean.
