about the problems with reopening.
When we consider returning to physical school under the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, we must center this question: which benefits of in-person education will be available to us with these restrictions in place? Sadly, I believe that a classroom operating under these protocols will be less effective and more traumatic than the inadequate and painful experience of remote learning.
And then, she explains exactly why.
Schools reopening is a thing we want badly, but if you think about it, at least for younger kids, it's kind of a fake reopening that doesn't accomplish what we imagine it will.
