As an example, some school districts in Texas are openly disobeying the ban on mandatory masking in schools, which was recently confirmed to be legal by a Federal appellate court. So we have a situation where:
- State regulation (via the governors executive order) says masking cannot be mandated in schools
- Courts have so far confirmed that the executive order is completely legal
- School district officials are openly defying the law by mandating masks in their jurisdiction
Does this mean that any student is entitled to openly refuse to obey the masking rules, citing the legal situation above? Or are they expected to comply until a court explicitly rules that their particular school district is violating the law?
