Governor Forced To Activate National Guard To Help Schools

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker (R) has been forced to activate the National Guard because of debates surrounding coronavirus restrictions and mandates. There simply is not enough bus drivers to get kids to school.

Baker’s officie announced that 250 National Guard personnel will provide support for school transportation.

“As with any school transportation worker, all activated Guard personnel will complete vehicle training to ensure the safety of children and families. Drivers will meet all statutory requirements for 7D drivers. Throughout the mission, the Guard will comply with all health and safety measures,” the press release from his office read.

“Once it became pretty clear that there were going to be some communities shorthanded — it wasn’t going to be a vehicle issue, it was going to be people with CDLs — we started talking to the Guard,” Baker said on Monday, WBZ-TV reported.
