and suicide, increased substance use, including deaths by overdosing, likely child abuse(since most is reported by teachers), low risk of spread, etc. I know there are a lot of dedicated teachers out there, but their resistance as a whole has been appalling. They are supposed to be dedicated to the welfare and educational development of our children, who are falling farther and farther behind, especially low-income kids and minorities. A lot of kids get better nutrition at school apparently also. If the teachers are elderly, have significant health risks, then they should stay at home and do virtual. 99.9 % of the others are not going to be "risking their lives" by returning to school. Has not shown any significant spread in schools in foreign countries that have resumed school. Sorry, but the people risking their lives when they go to work everyday are people like first responders, police, etc. Teachers unions(liberal for the most part) are behind a lot of this - talk about disinformation, they are scaring people when the risk would be minimal. A lot of teachers apparently just don`t want to do their job. I have great respect for those who are willing to take a small chance of catching Covid, which likely wouldn`t cause significant symptoms unless their health is already compromised, Some of them need to visit the Wizard for a little "Courage." And, I work with children and adolescents daily, in person, and the vast majority don`t wear masks. Do I worry about Covid? Not much and I`m 65 yrs. old. The collateral damage being done to our young people outweighs by far, in my opinion, the risk the average person would incur if they return to school.
