I’m glad to see this story, that I’ve been hearing about from my sister and reading in international news, making headlines in the US. We’re not opening schools in a vacuum. We have data from a country that tried it at a time when their curve was much more flat. NYT: “Confident it had beaten the coronavirus and desperate to reboot a devastated economy, the Israeli government invited the entire student body back in late May.” It Didn’t Go Well. (And “It Didn’t Go Well” is the Middle Eastern way of saying it was a complete shitshow.)
