Now that we know that children are the least affected by Corona and do not die from it……of course, de Blasio closes the schools for six months. Now is the time to break free from the leftist choke-hold on education. De Vos ought to head up a major effort to homeschool these kids and teach them rational thought— the theory of knowledge, especially with regard to its methods, validity, and scope, distinguishing justified belief from opinion.
De Blasio Says New York Public Schools Won’t Reopen Until September
City at the center of one of the worst coronavirus outbreaks in the U.S. made decision out of caution for students, faculty and staff
By Katie Honan and Lee Hawkins,April 11, 2020:
New York City’s public school system, the largest in the country, will remain closed for the rest of the school year as the city continues to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Mayor Bill de Blasio said Saturday morning that the schools, which have been closed since March 16, won’t reopen until September. Schools shifted to remote learning on March 23. The public-school system serves 1.1 million students.
The decision was made out of caution for students, faculty and staff, Mr. de Blasio said.
Michael Mulgrew, the president of the United Federation of Teachers, which represents 116,000 teachers, said last week that the city couldn’t return to schools until people could be safe.
“The city can’t even contemplate reopening schools until it has the equipment, the personnel and the procedures in place to ensure to parents and staff that the buildings will be safe,” Mr. Mulgrew said.
Remote learning has proved challenging for the city’s Education Department. Attendance in online classes has been an issue, although the city hasn’t released official data, Mr. de Blasio said last week.
“It’s a problem we predicted, unfortunately,” Mr. de Blasio said. “It’s a problem we assumed.”
