Great idea you idiot. We have about a month left so let's just cram all the kids together and see how many die.

This is especially concerning because we're now seeing some very peculiar (and lethal) manifestations of this virus in kids in the UK... I wonder if the virus is mutating, or it's an issue of the kids' genetic backgrounds.

Open ‘em. Don’t care. We’re not sending our kids back this year. We’re really good with stay-at-home as a unit.

If the situation is bad in the fall we may pay to enroll them in online, as much as I truly hate the for-profit online schooling for kids. Or get a crash course in home schooling.

What’s hilarious is that so many people still want to mentally segregate kids, as in, keep them out of school so they “they” are safe, but open up everything else.

If the people I've seen home school kids are any indication, it should be a breeze for you.

Yeah, we schooled at home, and the kids are doing just fine, thanks.

.

you can definitely, successfully homeschool without online schooling. homeschooled my kid through 8th grade. would have continued but he lobbied for conventional high school. looking back now he regrets that decision.

My friend homeschooled her son around the 10th grade because he was having all sorts of problems at school. They got them sorted out and he re-entered the last two years and thrived.

Our district is doing remote learning for the rest of the school year. We'll see about August...

You literally can't "reopen the country" and send people back to work if their children have nowhere to go.

We do quite well in the summertime.

That's because when you have a period of anticipated school closure *say, summer* other clubs, programs, camps, and childcare arrangements are readily available because it's an expected need.

Thus, the children don't have nowhere to go.
