A worry with schools. Kids get it, and then... https://t.co/cdP14kwqHK— Steven Dennis (@StevenTDennis) July 27, 2020
And honestly, it's not just the parents and students at risk here:
Donald Trump thinks essential workers are expendable. Republican voters are seeing that and fleeing.https://t.co/5Y1RfHAsNe— The Lincoln Project (@ProjectLincoln) July 27, 2020
I can see schools resuming anytime this year, and by the end of the week keeping all the students masked and "socially distanced" from each other, will simply be a pipe dream. Once they start taking off their masks, what do you do? Mass punishment by making them stay after school? Inside? With everybody else?
I was in high school when a fight broke out and the school administration lost control of about half the students on campus. They ended up sending everyone home early. It was all they could do. We're gonna see less belligerent replays of that this fall. Teachers can't force kids to wear masks or keep their distance if the kids decide they're tired of it; and they will. And we'll see another spike in cases.

So schools will stay open....
