A Rich Anti-Masker Is Starting a Mask-Free Private School System for His Followers' Kids - 2020-09-03
A wealthy man who has become one of Canada's most well-known anti-maskers is attempting to open up a network of private schools for the children of his followers to ride out the pandemic.
Chris Saccoccia, the son of a wealthy developer, is a childless man who founded a group called Mothers Against Social Distancing, whose Facebook page boasts 4,500 followers. Saccoccia, who goes by Chris Sky online, has been hyping "Private-On-Demand Education Inc." online for weeks to his thousands of, mostly middle-aged women, followers.
Saccoccia's plan is to create "pandemic pods," small groups of families that come together to create a private classroom or school where their children are homeschooled by a parent or privately hired teacher. He argues he will "save the children" from "masks and social distancing and indoctrination."
