Concerns over sending kids back to school in the fall are "not supported by the science" -- and people prioritizing their "political agendas" know it, former Princeton professor and Black Voices for Trump Advisory Board member Carol Swain said Sunday.

"If you look at what world experts are saying, like the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, experts in the U.K., children are not at risk of either contracting or spreading COVID-19," Swain asserted.
"They need to get back to school. There's great risk for them staying at home," she added. "It disrupts the family structure, it disrupts learning and it hurts the poorest children most of all because they don’t have the resources for the parents to hire someone to help them while they work."
"Whether we like it or not, there are people that don't care about the children," she said. "They care about the election, and they see an opportunity to hurt President Trump by keeping everything shut down.
"And so," Swain added, "whatever's taking place in Congress, it's not about our nation's health, it's not about the children first. It's about political agendas. Unfortunately, that's the way it is in America today."
