Come over to the lounge and get schooled on it by TLO and myself.

But he won't make the same mistake twice.

He wants to change CDC guidelines for opening schools.

CDC director: Keeping schools closed poses greater health threat to children than reopening

And this is his opinion in a nutshell, which is also the last paragraph in the article linked:

We could be wrong about schools, but we cannot afford to wait to find out for certain. We need school-based Covid-19 symptom screening, testing, contact tracing, and isolation. Opening without a plan to test is irresponsible and a gamble with our childrenís health.

----------
I disagree completely with his premise. We CAN afford to wait, especially when we have no idea what the long-term effects of contracting C-19 are in regards to younger people and especially, children.

It would be a much bigger disaster if schools force children back to school next month, only to have a massive wave of C19 lead to more 14 day quarantines for the children, their teachers, administrators and other family members.

If the kids remain at home until a vaccine is ready or the virus dies out, the children will still learn without being exposed to a potentially lethal virus. That said, I don't think there's a chance in hell that the LAUSD opens normally in 6 weeks because the virus is exploding in LA County.

Well, the 15 year old is on the spectrum, and my wife doesn't really leave him home alone.

Also, during the online classes this last Spring, she had to sit there with him to keep him on track.

Don't get me wrong. I don't think my kids are going to be in danger from covid if they are back in school in the fall. I think Trump is probably right about that.

But if it causes an explosion in the general population? That Second Great Depression that everyone keeps talking about is a real possibility. In my experience, even with things opened up again, a lot of people, are just not out patronizing businesses where they have to be near other people. A lot of people are afraid to go back to work.

In other words, it doesn't necessarily take a government imposed shutdown to tank the economy. This thing getting completely out of control could do it.

And opening schools in the fall could bring that about.

I have children younger than age 10 and there's not a chance in the world we're sending that child or our older child back to school in 6 weeks.

I don't know of a single parent here in LA that feels differently.

Pretty amazing really. Willingly sending your kids into a petri dish with a roof during a pandemic.
