SPRINGFIELD, IL. (ECWd) -
ECWd attended the Illinois State Board of Education meeting yesterday in Springfield, Illinois, where the Board heard more than 2 hours of public comment, mostly concerning the school mask requirements.
The majority of those speaking were asking for it to be changed to "mask optional" and not be applied as it is currently being applied.
There were protesters outside the building when we showed up, all asking for mask optional.
We livestreamed the entire public comment period, which can be viewed below:
