because unlike schools, Walmart is not filled with immature, willful hordes getting into fights, not washing their hands and running around wildly not wearing masks
(Oops, let me rephrase that. I'll get back to you)

If Walmart is open, schools should be, too, DeSantis says
[www.politico.com]

TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Ron DeSantis, in his push to reopen classrooms this fall, said Thursday that if retailers are allowed to operate, schools should be, too.

The risk of children getting sick is “extremely, extremely low,” DeSantis said, and if fast food eateries and hardware stores could operate as “essential” businesses during the coronavirus pandemic, then schools should reopen as well.

“But if all that is essential, then educating our kids is absolutely essential,” he said. “They have been put to the back of the line in some respects.”

Teachers and local school officials have raised concerns about the push, with Florida Education Association President Fedrick Ingram calling DeSantis and state officials “irresponsible” and acting for political reasons. “Our governor is content on using us as a petri dish for the nation,” Ingram said in an interview.

It's not about the kids, it's about the people around the kids.

Which is kinda what the whole mask-wearing thing is about. It's not about you. It's about everyone else. And we know how they fall on the topic of masks.

Dr. Ashish Jha, the head of the Harvard Global Health Institute decried the prospect of fully reopening schools.

“If we don’t do the things that the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] is asking for and more, the schools will all be shut by Columbus Day, and they will be shut for long periods of time,” Jha said. “That’s what we have to avoid, and we can’t bluff our way through this. We have to let science drive it.”

Hmmm...That kind of sounds like the attitude when everything opened up and people proceeded with business as usual, as if the virus had simply disappeared as was foretold.
