I understand the plantiffs point, but I don't think that the science is on his side.

It appears that while the youngest children manage to be resistant to both contracting and to spreading SARS-CoV-2, that trait seems to be inversely proportional with age.  It looks like at some point during the teenage years, the individual becomes basically as susceptible as adults are, or closer to it.  That means both the ability to contact and the ability to spread increases, such that the individual has a greater chance of infecting others, including those of vulnerable populations, like their proportionally aged grandparents, who are themselves more likely to be older than the grandparents of primary-school children.

So it would seem like if any school systems are going to reopen, most likely K-3 or K-6 ages would be less unsafe to reopen than junior high or high school grades.  Additionally, high school age students should be the most prepared to engage in distance-learning, since they should1 already have mastery of basic reading and math along with several years of experience using computers.  In contrast, the absolutely youngest students, the K-3 grades, probably won't really be able to effectively engage in distance learning without constant oversight by a guardian.

I do abolutely agree that it's likely that most students have had their educations harmed by this school closure, but at the same time, when the pandemic's effects were really unknown it made sense to step back and assess, and only now are we starting to have enough data to make reasonable decisions, both for health and for education.

1 and by should, I am aware that lots of kids end up promoted to higher grades even when they're terribly deficient if only because of a combination of teacher burnout and lack of state oversight to prevent it.  I'm playing on-averages here.

Of course it's hard to quantify, but how much harm could really have been done?  Schools began to close mid-late March.  The end of the school year was around the corner.

Does your dumbass not understand that people under 65 don't die from this and if you have a person over 65 living with you you should take appropriate measurements? You're basically saying, "AIDS is a sexually transmitted disease usually spread by anal sex between homosexual couples, so no one should have sex as opposed to homosexual men engaging in anal sex wear condoms and take necessary precautions." You're not smart and really stupid.

And that teachers have to sit in the classroom with 15 people who probably won't show symptoms even if they're infected? And the janitor will have to wipe down the virus-covered toilets multiple times a day? And the bus drivers...and the administrators...and the lunch ladies...and the...oh, sorry. I forgot. None of these people are you, so you've fallen asleep.

It's kind of a moot point for this school year, unless New Hampshire is on a very weird school calendar.  All school districts should be over by now, or at least no more than a week or two until the end of the school year.
 
2020-06-03 3:01:07 PM  
School isn't closed because of the risk to school aged children it's closed because they don't want children catching it at school and spreading it to people who are at risk.

Man, I guess I feel a whole lot better knowing that apparently 19% of the people who died in the US have just been faking it.

People heard children aren't affected by COVID and ran with it, and now we know children can end up with some terrible, lasting complications. It's just like the below 45 crowd thinking they were invincible especially if they were otherwise healthy, and now we know it can cause fatal clotting or clotting leading to amputations and lifelong complications.

Shutting down schools was the best thing districts could've done especially given the fact there's no vaccine yet.

Please read credible sources before spreading misinformation.

Many thousands of people under 65 have died of COVID 19. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsr​r/cov​id_weekly/index.htm#AgeAndSex

HIV is spread by heterosexual sex, both anal and vaginal. The main transmission vectors are different depending on what country you are in. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/book​s/NBK​219140/

The plaintiff claims the threat of the coronavirus has been seriously reduced and the risk to school-age children is so low that they outweigh the damage being done by remote learning.

What about the teachers and other support staff at the school? What happens when they all get quarantined or worse, because his wittle snowflake had to go to school?

Here, schools never reopened after closing for spring break, which was at the end of the third quarter of instruction.

So 25% of the school year was lost in calendar-days.  If one considers that challenges at the start of the school year often means actual functional instruction rolls out roughly for the first couple of weeks, then that could bump the effective amount of lost instruction time even higher.

Man, I guess I feel a whole lot better knowing that apparently 19% of the people who died in the US have just been faking it.


Note that those percentages are percentages of overall deaths in each age group, not chances of somebody in each age group dying from the virus.  Obviously, there are more younger people alive than older people, so those graphs makes it looks like the chances of a younger person dying from the disease is much higher than it really is.  Also, the sizes of the groups (in number of years' worth of ages) is not consistant.

Here are the chances of dying in each age group if you get the disease:

With very few exceptions, this is still true.  For every child that dies of the disease, hundreds if not thousands of retirees die from it.

The next news story (below the school one) is a better read:
''
''saved by her toddler neighbor. - Eyas Tran, 3, was out for a walk with his mother, Minh Tran, when he noticed three newspapers stacked on Pilat-Roth's steps. His quick thinking prompted him to ring her doorbell, and when she didn't answer, his mom called police.   When police found Pilat-Roth, she had been trapped in the room for 4 days. Now, Eyas is receiving an award for his quick thinking that saved his neighbor's life.''

Good kid - and not even going to school yet ;-)

On the flip side of that though, most middle and high school kids would probably be able to listen to instructions, keep social distance, wear a mask, etc.

Try corraling 25 7-year-olds to all do that.

Parents like that don't think we are people anyway. The thought that we could get sick doesn't one once enter their head.

They also argue against paying us. I don't even get "summers off" and have to work a second job to hit $40k/yr
