    We’re all guinea pigs all the time. It’s just that sometimes it’s more obvious than others.

    Prudent nations value educations and prosper as they can add value because of their knowledge and skills rather than counting on their natural resources to grow their economy [e.g. Venezuela]. These nations cherish their teachers and keep them from harm’s way.

    Brilliant Idea: Have everybody in the schools wear positive-air-pressure hamster balls”! Nobel Prize-worthy?

    Parents are getting sick of their kids, thus the pressure to open schools.

    Many parents need to go back to work and could if schools were open.

    I’ve had three people in my family test positive, now my son got a positive. High School math teacher. This is no joke.

    Articles and people keep telling me that in-person school is safe. But three people I know have had covid sweep through their families after one of their kids tested positive after other kids in their class had it. No fatalities thank goodness. I know that isn’t scientific or perfectly contact traced…but it still makes me concerned. I hope the people who say spread should be low are correct.

    We’ve got a ways to go yet; only 465,000 Americans have died of Covid so far. We’re shooting to beat the 1918 Spanish Flu record of 675,000. Remember, this pandemic is merely a hoax aimed at embarrassing Donald Trump. /s

    It seems to be less harmful to children than to adults. However, my brother, 72, died of it. My sister in law, who got it at the same time, had a mild case. And, my RN son, who was working 60 hour weeks on the covid ward prior to Thanksgiving has been in the hospital with covid and then the damage it did to his body since then, so take it seriously. You have three possible outcomes. Two of them are pretty bad.

    The Green Bay school board has decided to get students back to school next month, using different models for the various grade levels. They are to be following the CDC guidelines, but some principals and teachers have pointed out that the ‘social distancing’ part is hard to do in most classrooms. I think they a hoping that enough parents will continue to keep their kids home, to make distancing possible. The guinea pigs are correct – “this should be interesting.”

    Still experimenting on school children with republican spread covid and the destruction of the school system by de Vos. Republicans are of course resisting every effort to put things right.

    If it was logical not to prosecute a POTUS for his misdeeds by saying “his term will be over soon anyway” then it’s logical to not open schools at all this year since “this school year will be over soon anyway”…

    I can’t imagine much being accomplished in the four months left of this school year. And, I can imagine a whole lot things happening that aren’t good. If I still had kids in school, they wouldn’t be going back until next fall, for sure. And, I would decide if the situation warranted it at that time, for now it most certainly doesn’t.

    I got it, we’ll send the underprivileged kids to the over privileged schools and visa versa. The kids from the poorer districts can benefit from fewer kids in the classroom and social distancing, a fully funded school, etc. The rich kids can have more kids in a class, no way to social distance, etc. Don’t worry too much for the rich kids, their parents still have better access to quality health care than the poor kids.

    Not really. Thousands of schools across the nation, public, private and parochial, opened at the beginning of the school year (Sept) and have remained open since. They followed “the science”. And, have generated a mountain of data demonstrating that it is safe.

    Schools opened and closed as they were infected with covid and children died, thanks to the ignorant republican covid spreaders who did nothing to stop a deadly but controllable with science disease.
