I haven't read through this entire thread, but in my city, the Catholic archdiocese is opening its schools for in-person classes, while the public school teachers' union threatened to strike - so public schools are opening with virtual learning. Same city, same virus statistics, different decisions. Not all parents have the resources or ability to stay home from work for months and the fallout from these decisions is going to be substantial. We're going to have to make difficult decisions for the benefit of society as a whole.
This has been my point all along. That last sentence, though, from what I’m reading, it’s really not “we”, it’s only the kids and parents at the schools who refuse to open, while other area schools are.
