Do you think schools will open next semester? This is a hot topic as the United States struggles with an effective response to the Covid-19 CoronaVirus. As of July 2020, over 130 Americans have died from complications due to CoronaVirus Covid-19 and the numbers are only going up due to our lack of an organized Federal response plan. Some states have begun various stages of reopening whereas other states are regressing and going back to orders to wear masks or shelter at home.
So where does that leave our education infrastructure in America? Without school parents of young children will need child care if they were to be called back to work during the days. And what about college students, some paying upwards of $20k, even $50K a year for education at one of our more prestigious universities? Is it safe to reopen our schools? Do College Students feel short-changed out of a traditional, in-person, college education if they are forced to participate in distance learning?
It’s a complex issue to be sure, and there's plenty to consider. We must factor in safety and the economy and personal freedoms in ways that we as a nation have never before.
