I find it hard to believe that trump is pushing for schools so open after a the outbreaks that were happe00ning in summer camps. Also his own son will not be returning until October at the earliest, but possible January after they reevaluate. If you think young kids will wear masks you are out of your mind. They will find a lot of uses for them, wearing being the last thing. (LOL)
I do not see them being able to say it is safe for our 3 children until at least the first of the year. They are having problems all over the country with with kids summer camps and then finding they are having outbreaks, some do not even know until they get home. But they were all cleared to open and assured there would be no problems. The testing is taking to long and not always reliable. I will not send our 3 back if it open in August and most teachers I talk to do not think it will be safe for the students of teachers. I guess we were lucky and have some excellent teachers, on line if you did not understand you could send messages and teachers would help the kids out privately. They also were able to ask questions during regular zoom class time. Our teachers also left the class open for a few extra minutes each day so the kids could visit with each other.
In our area every kid is supplied a computer by the school and they have made internet available at their homes or by appointment in some other location. Lessons can be emailed to the teacher so they have instantly. It is working differently in lots of areas so to say it is not possible when you do not know how it works in other areas is not helpful. We are in Southern California.
If the school aka the TAX PAYERS just GAVE your child a computer and PAYS for your internet then you are pretty lucky.
Statistics say that over 90 per cent of kids have access to computers at home, and the same number if not higher have computers at school in their classes. The classroom computers are what the children were given to use until they return to school. If they do not have internet, they make reservations at different locations to use their computers with the internet.
Because of some districts saying they are going back to school now they are having a lot of teachers retire and/or just leave the field of teaching. Since there already is a shortage of good teachers this in the long run will not be very good.
