During a local League of Women Voters Fairbanks municipal candidate forum last night (Monday) all candidates underscored the value of classroom over online learning. Seat F candidate Gregory Kahoe said the COVID pandemic situation in Alaska needs to be put in perspective.
"The risk of any Alaskan dying is about 0.00042; let's put this risk in context and let's put the kids back in school please.”
Seat G candidate Brandon Boylan agreed about the importance of returning students to classrooms, but cautioned against doing so now.
