The Importance of Reopening America’s Schools this Fall

The Importance is that we (USA) do something right regarding Covid / Education / our youth.

I trust our USA youth are NOT learning by our current examples in these arenas.

Plenty of room for improvement.

CDC posts 10% as unacceptable (our community was at <3%, but last week earned a place on President's "Hot List", posting 17% positives, in reality the most recent testing sequence ran up to 47% positive. And our testing is very minimal and S-L-O-W (outdated by the time you get results).

I thi k we are a 0-sum game regarding Covid-19 and the developmental and educational issues for students. The best we can offer is the least harm. The problem is we won't know which is worse for years after we make this call.

That's for local school boards to decide.

When the evening news says "California" or "Texas" has a lot of cases they are talking statewide but it may only be a handful of large urban areas that accounts for most of the cases. That's how it is where I live in PA, with the overwhelming majority of cases occurring in Philly and Pittsburgh.

If teachers and students are wearing masks and sitting behind barriers to protect from a harmful disease flying around in the air, then does it make any sense anyone should even be there? Until it's known the harmful disease is not flying around?

Oh I forgot. A lot of things about school don't make any sense.

That is true . . . from a purely simple education point of view.

However . . . to create a situation conducive to education the Public Schools now provide or assist with --

+ Food
+ Help Shelter
+ Provide and screen Medical
+ Clothing
+ Social Work screening
+ "Baby sit"
+ Socialize
+ Therapy

. . . the list is longer . . . before we can even get to Education.

This is not a complaint or wish to return to a spartan one-room schoolhouse, but more a case of Situational Awareness.

[Edit, back on topic -- but to try to do all that AND add COVID-19 on top is pretty nutty]

Because the decisions of 10000+ boards of part time volunteers with ZERO Medical or Technical knowledge are going to magically guess the right answer(s)?

US = Unbelievably Stupid.

Amazing the Virus has not already taken US flat.

Yes, it is unbelievable how people trust these local school boards over the CDC.

Many of these school board members run for election on a single issue like who should be the head football coach or which book should be banned from the school.
