Kids need to breathe

To the editor:

I don’t have children in school or grand kids in school, so I don’t get involved much with school. But I have seen videos of teenagers playing basketball with masks on their faces. Those bodies are working hard and need fresh air, yet they are taking in some of the air they have just exhaled. Would you put a hose on the exhaust of your car and put the other end in the air intake of the engine? Wouldn’t that cut air pollution? I’ve been told that wrestlers can wrestle without a mask but they cannot shake hands after the match. I must be short on education because this does not make sense to me. I do believe there is a lot worse things coming to the schools.
