1. Woah!

That's a huge percentage.

The sarcastic part of my wants to point out that they're well on their way to herd immunity. The realistic part understands that herd immunity be damned, these kids are going to pass the virus along to others, especially adults, some of whom will get very sick.

7. You are smart!

Aging Teachers Ask Themselves, Do I Quit Or Risk My Life?
"As school districts consider reopening, aging or immunocompromised teachers must balance financial, health and insurance concerns."
https://www.huffpost.com/entry/teachers-retirement-quit-coronavirus-schools-reopen_n_5f0dae3fc5b6df6cc0b15fc0

"The potential wave of retirements comes at a time when some schools are planning to lay off teachers and staff, as districts face potentially steep budget cuts. Due to these cuts, teachers are skeptical that their schools will have the resources to put proper safety protocols in place. Education groups have been lobbying for hundreds of billions of dollars in help. While President Donald Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos have been pressuring schools to fully reopen — something that many districts have already begun to reject — some teachers say they feel like casualties of a larger political agenda.
“People still want to work, but do people want to be on the frontlines of this pandemic?” he said. “Because that’s what they’re asking teachers.”

5. Yeah that's just a shitshow. Schools opening? Pfffft

No way. The long term consequences of this virus do not leave all kids unaffected.

8. I really believe they will back down from this.

1. Number of infected will continue to go up and everyone knows it, even though dimwit donnie wants to hide all of the data.

2. His poll numbers will continue to go down so he will rethink it.

3. Teachers and parents will not send their kids back in droves. His own party will revolt.

We had really decent numbers here in MT. Tourist season is blowing it for us. I’m angry about it.

10. We really don't need to kill all the teachers.

These are well trained professionals. We need to protect them now for our children’s future. It’s not safe for them to be at work.

15. A while back I read an article where a college kid came home after her college closed.

She was asymptomatic, but had COVID-19. Her parents got COVID-19. It wasn't clear whether they got it from her. They both died. I still think about and worry about that young woman.

Is DeVos going to open orphanages for the kids who inadvertently kill their parents?
