    Do you have children?
    Even the American Academy of Pediatricians supports school openings. I have a feeling they don't hate kids.

    The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), American Federation of Teachers (AFT), National Education Association (NEA) and AASA, The School Superintendents Association, join together today in the following statement on the safe return of students, teachers, and staff to schools:

    “Educators and pediatricians share the goal of children returning safely to school this fall. Our organizations are committed to doing everything we can so that all students have the opportunity to safely resume in-person learning.




    https://services.aap.org/en/news-roo...ool-this-fall/

    Of course they urge that precaustions be taken, but they clearly support reopening schools.

    An "ounce of prevention" ? Interesting standard.
    I don't think the left would approve of applying that made up standard for school reopenings to their beliefs.

    Would an "ounce of prevention" also justify stopping BLM protests and riots? I could go on but will leave it at that.

    We still don't know that for certain but there are indications that it is quite possible.

    Indications are that even in mild cases it can cause neurological damage - as the article so quaintly puts it: But there is no dialysis machine for the brain.

    So do you want to roll the dice? Or would you rather have your children to be ones who take the chance?

People forget that children can and do die from numerous causes. Minute risk from Covid is vastly outweighed by the cost of a lost education.

    On the contrary opening schools is advised by the APA. Closing schools harms children.

    In an interview with CBS News' Catherine Herridge, President Trump said schools that don't plan to reopen in the fall are making a "terrible decision." Watch more of the interview with the president on the “CBS Evening News” at 6:30 p.m. ET, and on “CBS This Morning” from 7 to 9 a.m. ET.
