An 8-year-old boy has decided to take matters into his own hands and started a petition to end the mask mandate at his Florida school.
In just four days, Charlie collected 400 signatures to make masks optional in Seminole County schools, WOFL-TV reported.
“I don’t want people to feel uncomfortable by not wearing a mask,” Charlie said.
His friend, Reagan, added, “Some people like to wear them and some people don’t.”
The student got the idea from something he read in a book and he decided to start a petition and collect signatures from his neighbors.
“It’s been … kind of bad because I can’t see a lot of people, and I can’t tell if they’re happy or sad,” Charlie told Fox News.
There about are 67,000 students and 4,500 teachers in
