This is a lively discussion- an important one, since the children’s education will suffer again. Also, their social development.
Where I live, they are talking about the hybrid type- one group in am and one in pm combined with distance learning.
The American Academy of Pediatrics want the kids back in school. Not much time left now before school starts.
My grandchildren, 8 and 5, live in southern Sweden where COVID has not caused as much sickness as in Stockholm. They have so far continued to go to school.
Each area has to do the best it can to return to some normalcy without risking lives.
This pandemic still has a long way to go. The kids definitely will be set back. Sad.

@astaingerdm, I am so glad that Sweden has suffered less than many other places due to COVID.

As a whole, we tend to get so wrapped up in the newest daily crisis that we sometimes forget to prioritize what is most important which is the safety and welfare of our children. I fear what the pandemic is doing to children across the world and what long lasting ramifications it will hold for their futures.

The risk of infection rises with exposure at school campuses while the risk of emotional harm comes from keeping them separate from their peers during these years of development. And yes, while this weighs heavily as decisions are made, most will work to make the best of whatever choices are selected.
