Close all the schools, lay off all the teachers and administrators.

Go to real homeschooling.

Normally I’d err on the side of opening up things, but I’m a teacher and I know how things are in public education.

I’m most schools, the classroom sizes will be closer to 30-35. This is due to the fact that school systems have had their revenues crushed by the drop in overall property tax revenue this year. Teachers who are retiring are not being replaced...so, larger class sizes.

May be some systems could just delay 2 weeks in order to see how the recent spike in infections translates into deaths. Also, we can see if rate of infections begins to drop again.

I teach at an “alternative school”; one that is notorious for having kids sent to school sick because the parents don’t want them at home (or worse).

I would. My daughter is a teacher and she does and will. Same for next door neighbor. They will take safety measures,temp, distance and lots sanitizer. Here’s something you don’t hear on TV: No one IN THE WORLD under the age of 14 has died from the virus and kids are only spreaders and consider to be weak spreaders as asymptomatic- do not “project” virus. The overwhelming t majority of those exposed to virus do not catch it, my wife was directly exposed and did not catch it. 90% of those being tested who were exposed do not have it.

It can be done safely.

If you are obese or have other co-morbidity, pulmonary , heart etc stay home

Be safe but try and not panic.

Exactly. No teachers union in Texas....the 2 teachers in my family are supposed to go back in August. The 5th grade math teacher will have classroom students and online students. If he gets sick, he will be required to do distance teaching from home. His district survey has 70% parents wanting their kids in school. For daycare. I have no idea who to believe about positive test numbers and deaths and hospital capacity. It’s all political, now 😡

I would. And I did in Santa Clara County in March up until they closed the school.
