    In my experience, honesty should be withheld until the danger has passed.

    A lot of thinking and worrying this year.

    Betsy Devoid says children need to be in school. “We may have a few hiccups along the way, but we can handle that.” By hiccups, I presume she means sick kids – or worse. Much worse.

    Schools do not operate without adults. Even if children do not usually get very ill, they can get Covid, and some of them will die. Moreover those adults will be exposed as well—school staff and also the students’ families. Meanwhile we are getting closer to an effective vaccination. The Moderna trials look promising, as do several other trials. I believe the best course is to wait. Just wait. Online learning was jury-rigged together. Surely it could be improved. Also, kids could become better at it. But even if kids learn nothing at all online, at least they—and the adults around them—will be safe.
