    The Dems seem want to stop children being educated for some reason. Can only because they see a political advantage in disruption going through until the election. I suspect that if this weren't an election year there would be no question of schools going back as soon as possible. They are putting children at risk for perceived political advantage.
    Sorry, but unless you can back that up with factual material, it is merely a load of partisan garbage.

    Trump is in line with Trump, nothing more, nothing less.

    Opening the schools this fall with the pandemic in full swing in the US is not 'in the best of interest of the children and the country.'

    European nations have a handle on the pandemic, the US does not with currently 50,000 new cases per day. Trump is ignoring this fact and has no idea what he is doing.
    I note from your link that the American Academy of Pediatricians wants schools to be reopened. Thus in seeking to reopen schools Trump is acting fully in line with the relevant professional advice. This just looks like the Dems wanting to keep schools closed for political reasons.

    It is widely accepted that the long period that children have had of school has been hugely damaging to their education and well being. Further children are almost entirely unaffected by the virus and have little involvement in its spread. In the UK numerous paedatricians and other child health professionals have demanded that children go back to school and schools return at 100% capacity in September. Nearly all European countries have returned their children to school in part or full already. Schools should return in full ASAP.

    Trump's handling of coronavirus is only election issue that matters

    Trump now in open dispute with health officials as virus rages

    Five months into a still-raging pandemic that has killed more than 130,000 Americans, the long-simmering tensions between President Donald Trump and the health experts who staff his government have escalated from private griping to shrugging disagreement to now open dispute.

  • This 'Idea' will make the Pandemic in the US Much Worse

    The Trump and DeVos 'push' to start schools up in September will not solve the problems and will spread the virus. Once again, he is making a decision of which he has no expertise.

    Trump administration officials pushed for a full reopening of U.S. schools in the fall on Wednesday, though they stopped short of providing detailed plans for how to return students to the classroom as the coronavirus pandemic worsens.

    “It’s time,” Vice President Mike Pence said at a White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing. “It’s time for us to get our kids back to school.”

    The stance sets the stage for a fight between the federal government and local authorities who are planning only part-time, in-person learning. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos cited Fairfax County, Virginia’s plans for bringing students back for either no days or two days a week at the briefing as an example of “false paradigms” she said were being created.

    “In the end it’s not a matter of if schools will open, but how,” she said. “They must fully open.”

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which has previously issued some guidance for schools, plans to issue additional recommendations for next week, the officials said. CDC Director Robert Redfield emphasized at the briefing that they’re only recommendations, and weren’t intended “to be used as a rationale to leave these schools closed.”

    President Donald Trump attacked the existing guidelines in tweets on Wednesday, calling them “very tough & expensive.” He threatened to cut off funding to schools that don’t reopen.
