With COVID-19 cases surging across the US, parents are divided about whether kids should go back to school or continue to learn virtually.; Experts warn there may be an initial increase in cases once kids return to school. Schools across the country should follow guidelines set forth by the CDC in an attempt to keep students and staff safe. FRIDAY, July 10, 2020 (HealthDay News) Kids should be able to safely return to reopened schools this fall, resuming their studies with little risk that they will contribute to the COVID-19.

for reopening schools. But this push has also made school administrators, parents, and teachers wary of going back to school full time as they fear becoming the site of super spreader events. 2 days ago · Jahana Hayes of Connecticut, a longtime educator and National Teacher of the Year in 2016, highlighted the emotional and mental health drawbacks to reopening schools without a safety plan. The debate over reopening America’s K-12 schools, explained. Solving the school problem is crucial for parents and kids. Here’s what experts say would help.

To be sure, these experts say safety precautions will be necessary to reopen schools. They do not support the unconditional reopening of schools nationally being urged by. To be sure, these experts say safety precautions will be necessary to reopen schools. But they say an assessment of risks versus benefits points to the wisdom of reopening. The latest available data suggests that children are less likely to become infected with the coronavirus and less likely than adults to develop severe cases.

Murtaugh said the Trump team believes that schools can reopen, and reopen safely — despite the lack of guidance for schools districts about what constitutes a safe reopening. School closures have affected over 55 million K–12 students in the U.S. since March as the nation deals with the coronavirus pandemic. Although numerous private schools and. Only two factors will really determine when it’s safe for parts of the US to reopen schools and how they should do so, experts say.

The first is the state of the local coronavirus outbreak itself.

Safety plans need to be reviewed and revised regularly as the students’ coping skills grow over time.

  • Believe me this is the same debate going on in india about our exams, and the governments puts the exams above the health of students.

  • Playing gta v, going out with my best friends, chilling, doing what i want when i want. It was awesome, now i have to go back to 8 hour prison.

  • Schools are overloaded with students. The only way school has been possible is because of immunizations for measles, pertussis, flu, etc. 
    There is no way school can open without a vaccine for CV-19. Its too catchy, novel.  
    Just chalk up this year as a loss. It’s sad but necessary until there is a vaccine.

  • I wonder what Dr. Mike’s opinion is on schooling for professional/doctoral/graduate schools. I’m a 1st year DPT student in California, and it’s been very complicated trying to get the confirmation to go back on campus for hands-on labs. I feel very unprepared as a future professional, but we just got confirmed for a strict return this coming week. I can only imagine how other graduate students in the heath care field are feeling in these times, because I know I’m having a hard time with it.

  • Does anyone honestly think the party that supports murdering their own newborns care about child education?? The Dem party supports the murder of newborn babies.

  • So the CDC and our government wants our children to be killed just by a stupid decision of going back to school?… Online classes is the solution, don’t be stupid enough to send them back and see death rates rise.

  • Please don’t open schools. My mom is a Teacher of Elementary Kids and she said when the pandemic hit there was no way to control their hygiene enough or even distancing, some things are impossible with kids. I love my mom and I don’t want her getting even a mild form of this.

  • Yeah, I couldn’t go back. I have asthma and my mum also has asthma, smokes, and has autoimmune diseases and I have little siblings. I’m not gonna risk bringing it home to them or getting it myself.

  • school is torture it should never re open and plus we will freaking get coronavirus and yet at my school the have an option to go to the school building.. BRO THATS BAD

  • There is no debate. Parents, students and teachers dont want to go back. Only the Amerikkkan government wants us to go kill ourselves

  • People can go and visit their loved ones in care homes to prevent spreading this deadly virus washable by soap 😉 but kids can go to school, we can go to restaurants and walk around without masks. What a lack of consistency. Kids go back to school, then they’ll pretend that we have a second wave or third (have lost count now!) and then justify the use of a vaccin (full of aluminium, mercury, pig fat, manipulated genomes, etc… acting directly on our DNA) which has not been tested in labs, mammals or humans (it takes about 5 years to go through the 3 phases for a vaccin to be approved) but of course we can’t wait 5 years because…. yyes, of course the amount of deaths which happen to be less than last year’s flu by the way many die every year from the vaccin than the flu itself. Once the vaccin is out, countless deaths will happen and people and Covid will be blamed not the vaccin as they already covered their asses by writing that they will not accept any liability for any secondary effects. Great! All deaths during Covid were automatically labelled as Covid although they may have been cancer due to stopping chemo. Just needed to blow up the numbers to scare us a bit more. When you’re scared, your immune system breaks down and then what? You get sick! Bravo. Ready to become guinea pigs folks for the Bill and Melinda Gate Foundation. Bill happens to be an eugenist who believes that the world is overpopulated and then offers to vaccine us? Huh, I think I’ll pass! Oh wait, he’s not even a doctor, hes an informatician. How did he get a licence to be the next doctor of the world, ah yes, I remember, moneeeyyyy…. Countless doctors and lawyers are now talking openly from every part of the word about this myth which is Covid which aim is to make the economy coallapse and rebuild a global economy cashless using a little implant delicately (and for free) put in your arms, soooo convenient! Conspiracy theory, nope, just conspiracy, it’s all out there now.

  • WAIT WAIT WAIT did this women just say schools are going to be a alternative to kids that are in abusive home situations? That a reason to open? So now teachers become social workers, Psychologists, nurses, probation officers, and now babysitters? Lets add up the yearly salaries for all these jobs combined and find a reasonable pay for these people… Oh I also forgot to say they are risking their lives.. 32,000 a year or less? Seriously?

  • I disagree with everything this lady has said! And I’m from up North California by sacramento (yuba city) grades 3-8 should have face masks and distance in the class rooms.but kindergarten 1st n 2nd shouldnt have to worry about it because there smaller and the school here for the younger ones have sinks n soap to wash up in tje classrooms which is good, And the teacher can keep an eye on them also to make sure they wash up and are being safe til they go back home. And its only a half day for the schooling not a full day? What are u suppost to learn virtual with in 3-4 hr? Not much right?ill tell u what my daughter times how long until her classes end and shes out the door playing after her zoom meeting lol i ask her at bedtime how was her class to see if her braim still remebered, well she gave me about 2sentemces them said she forgot because she just wamted to play? Lol and shes a straight A student and on honor roll, loosing touch her education because of this epidemic…. While being in a class helps the brain to memorize what’s needed to be umderstood than during a zoom meeting as too where everyone can here and mosy students not feeling safe to answer incorrectly out loud. or maybe to fully get that one on one help if the student struggles with a subject. I have 3girls from 6th, 2nd, and 3rd graders and I see myself they learn and take in knowledge diffrently. And as far as the littler kids? They dont know how to work tablets and computers and there barely learning there letters so how would that work for younger students? Idk i think the hole thing is confusing as a parent of 3students and a mother dealing with this damn corona virus! She said 4milliom got infected but only 150,000 have passed? Idk about anyone else but ill take 150,000 anyday over 4millions deaths.and if we taking measurments how we are now and people still are getting sick or dying what the hell do we do when it gets worse is the real question!

  • What yall politicans realize that in about 40 years they will be hear you guys not so much by sending them to school yoir basicly killing the human population

  • Also, can you do a video on the effect that facemasks (that teachers are wearing) are having on young children learning and using their faces as a means of expressions (expressing feelings)?

  • The USA is the only country in the world that closed schools..The other nations have no issues or problems letting kids attend school!

  • I bet a kid will get covid-19 and it will spread like wildfire and thousands to maybe Millions of covid-19 and it might become a epidemic then the parents will get covid-19 etc

    It will get worse so NO MORE SCHOOL

  • You know what i hate the most about the reopening of schools? They had AAAAAAALLL this time to improved the educational system but they did JACKSHIT.

  • I think under the pandemic they should pay the schools as if they have kids in the classrooms and then do an online / video instruction. For parents that just need school as a daycare. Limited seating would be available spacing them out in the gym.

  • Why not make television channels that broadcast the curriculum for the school year? Big cable companies and public access channels can easily do this.

  • Fauci is a fraud. The evidence is overwhelming that kids are unaffected by coronavirus. 14 years and under have seen 12 deaths since Feb 1st. About 200 kids have died of pneumonia and the common flu during the same time period. The fact that we are still locking down children is a crime against humanity and child abuse. This is ridiculous and fauci should be fired because he’s clearly incompetent. Wake up people!

  • Fuccin hell. I’m gonna be royally pissed off if my freshmen year, which is gonna set a precedent for the rest of my life in highschool, is gonna be astronomically more difficult than it would’ve been if it was open.

    Guys, just a little note, at least here in the state of MA, and at least for the highschools, most schools are choosing to do remote learning to protect the health of the TEACHERS, NOT the students. Students for the most part should not be afraid of getting deathly ill from this virus.

  • 3:10 “The science should not stand in the way of this…science is on our side here.”
    So which one is it??!! UNBELIEVABLE. #NoReopenPlan #KeepSchoolsClosed

  • We need a new militia group. NFAP. Not F_ Around Parents. Don’t send kids to school until Trump leaves office. Let’s face it, we are at war in this country. The enemy is in the White House making destructive decisions against the citizens of America. Nobody goes to school when war is in their backyard.

  • If the BS19 was that fatal, every healthcare worker and homeless person would be dropping like flies. Quit with the fearmongering and inflation of the false numbers. Schools just want to stay closed because they are demanding funding until their cities can defund the police and support BLM! The true pandemic here is CHILD Trafficking, folks!!

  • What you failed to mention is that more kids get and have gotten Kawasaki’s disease from their yearly vaccines, chicken pox, the flu, Nora iris, tick bites. Then they have ever and will ever get from COVID 19. You have hear maybe 1 or 2 cases of the millions of people infected right now of actual Kawasaki’s disease in children. Those numbers are going to go up when the influx of vaccines goes into children. That is the number one cause of Kawasaki’s disease. But don’t mention that?

  • Kids wearing masks? I thought they said kids weren’t at risk of Covid? Oh dear… Rather challenging to make clear guidelines for something that doesn’t exist, right? 😉

  • theres a fule vacen and peple stell died every year from flue what make yall thank covid 19 will be any defrent i thank ill pass and the vacen

  • Don’t forget buses, social distancing so 12 kids per bus. Often the small details get left out, hope schools can hire all these unemployed and have a army of buses ready to go.

  • These guys are insane, they think that only children and teachers would be affected by this decision…
    they don’t talk at all about how children can become transmission vectors between families (many of them having elderly members)
    Children respond well to the virus and very often do not show symptoms but that doesn’t mean they don’t pass it on to other kids and ultimately to their families…

  • I know that all kids in my class won’t social distance they will be careless and I guarantee TEACHERS WILL DIE AFTER GETTENG VIRUS FROM A STUDENT WHO GOT IT FROM ANOTHER STUDENT AND ONCE THEY GET HOME THEY WILL SPREAD TO THIER FAMILY

  • Believe me there are a lot of kid Karen’s out there, they aren’t gonna listen to social distancing or a

  • I will write legislation placing the propaganda artists, fear mongers, legislative body members, mayor, and governors who have worked tirelessly to destroy our country into hard labor prisons to be worked to literal death.

  • Covid 19 is no joke people, I just lost my grandfather to that today. He was a doctor too. He was the most loving, sincere and bravest person I knew, he was the best doctor I’ve ever met in my life. It feels like covid 19 is not that serious or anything, but believe me, it is. You never realise it until it happens to you or your closed ones. You never know when it affects you, you think “we’ll see what happens when it happens”, but believe me, you won’t be able to, if it affects you, you can do nothing but pray to God. So I beg you all to follow proper rules and regulations and please please be safe.

  • “Its not that hard”, says the economist. Predicting economic downturns is easy, says the teacher. As an educator yes it is that hard. Just planning for a hybrid model has taken up most of my summer. I get why the government wants students back in school but the planning of how that can happen with social distancing is a total nightmare.

  • Kids will get the virus if this happens, which will mean they will spread it to other families. It will literally be chaos because there are millions of children that go to school, millions of families. The fact that you don’t see the symptoms right away and how contagious this virus is just makes this so DANGEROUS. I might be wrong, but tbh it’ll just make things worse. Just do online school. Bruh my mom though I was going crazy a few months ago cuz I was studying corona after school and always talking about it, but look where we are now. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

  • i am genuinely worried over the fact that children are attempting to regulate my interpersonal relations. it is raising alarm bells

  • What do you think you politicans you can just say Go back to schooland getting teachers at high risk if they get covid will you politicians pay for the helath insurance?

  • Schools should be closed down no need to open back up! These jabroni’s who are ignorant teachers need to take this more seriously. School districts need to take this seriously no kids should be in school they need to stay home all day! Anyone who’s a ignorant parent needs to take this whole Covid-19 thing seriously by any means necessary.

  • Hi Doc. Love the videos. I’m guessing you’re doing this video from your office for this interview as opposed to your normal videos done from your couch. It seems like your office has a lot of echo. Have you thought about getting some sound dampeners in your office for times when you record from there? Keep up the great work!

  • And this morning the news has shared a LEAKED report from the Administrations Secret group studying the Virus. The Report recommended that in At LEAST 11 RED states they need to back off the opening and start shutting down again. Of Course Trump in his infinite wisdom said absolutely not and that he wanted schools open at any cost. Basically he doesn’t care who dies. The GOP though has decided that the convention should be mostly on line at this point. So Political gatherings they will protect???

  • I would be fine if I get COVID because I am not morbidly obese and I am a young teen and also in good shape and it would be a.4 percent chance that I would die from this virus so schools should just open and have sports

  • “Suspicious Police installing 5G towers during start of plannedemic”
    75 years of fake peace

  • We shouldn’t even be doing Online schooling. We are supposed to sit in a computer in a zoom class from 8AM to 3PM every single DAY for weeks and months. And then we are supposed to go back physically after three months when the government just so decides so. We are going die. Everyone is so hard on that “We need school”… no we don’t. Education isn’t just in school, it’s everywhere. They don’t care what students think or the well-being. The virus is only getting worse. Imagine putting rowdy, loud kids full of energy by the thousands across the world in small buildings.

  • At this point fauci doesn’t give a crap anymore because he as well as cdc and who told us ways to prevent spreading of this disease and all people did was complain or didn’t listen.

  • Im scared going to school but also furious, oh and they only care for politics and money… MONEY!!!, Oh who should i blame to kill of my elderly family members by catching coronavirus and spreading it to them?!, and im furious that your supposed to TAKE OFF YOUR MASKS while you eat?!!?!?!?!?!?!!?, im not blaming my mom, im not blaming by teacher, not even the principal, i blame the person who decided to reopen schools!!!!!! and politics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, because they care for so much money!!! at this point i lost trust with my family, they want me to go ugh cant wait for one of them to be infected and regret it. also they cant control lice, they cant even have good lunch, and disgusting bathrooms, also they talked nothing about 11-19 year olds just 4-9 year olds, what a crappy country!!! also kids have probably 70-120iq (no offense:( but its just insane the schools are dumber than kids!!!!!!!!!!!!, and cant wait to catch corona for revenge, i wont spread it ill isolate myself no matter what! my cousin (okOK shes 6) but she has asthma and she can get infected, what if i accidently kill my cousin by spreading the virus?! so yeah HORRIBLE IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • My grandson will not go back to school he was a micro preemie, he has a low resistance,and gets fever seizures, he can catch. Up on his education he cant get another LIFE!!!!!

  • I think the problem is you can’t pinpoint the exact contraction date so we don’t know for sure teachers get COVID from being in school or from being out in the general public. It’s not direct cause and effect (teacher went to work at a school-teacher gets covid) there are so many possibilities in which teachers or anyone for that matter contract it.

  • I have to go back to school in two days, and tbh im not worried about ME catching the virus, im worried about carrying the virus home, giving it to my parents and my sister and then my sister giving it to the seniors at her work. My parents are in their 40s-50s and they are likely to be effected by it more than me

  • Education in the south has already been dumbing down kids since the turn of the century. Now as I watch my nephew deal with this “satelite ” education I see another digression happening. Its just sad but let’s support these kids man seriously

  • I think lower income students see a decline probably because lower income families tend to be lazy and problematic.
    I think higher income families tend to be more responsible and less problematic.
    I think we shouldn’t blame an academic decline on income when it might have a lot to do with the personality traits of the family members. also the fact that higher income families are succeeding just as well with online classes only seems to prove how unnecessary in person public schools can be. just my opinion.

  • I have a 6 year old. At first we got to choose, full virtual or in person. I chose full virtual. Then the school district decided to to full virtual across the board. Yes, it’s been crazy figuring things out trying to start a school year at home but I’d rather be safe than sorry.

  • People are sick and dying when this pandemic could be contained within two weeks if everyone would wear a mask or stay in for 2 weeks.
    People we have lost competent top leadership so we must unite and make sound decisions among ourselves for the preservation of our homes, communities, and our country. United We Stand….Divided We Fall!
    America We Need to PRAY and REPENT! The LORD calls us and holds us responsible (see 1 Timothy 2) for those in leadership and authority over us including Presidents, Supreme Court Judges, Congress, Governors, Church leaders, Societal Systems, Local Governments, heads of households, and so on. God calls us as Believers to Pray if we desire to live quiet and peaceful lives in godliness. ALL men/humans are flawed and in desperate need of Salvation. Otherwise we “Pay when we don’t Pray” with social and racial unrest, corruption, injustices, pandemics, plagues, poverty, wars and so on. Believers we are responsible for our plight. WE MUST OBEY GOD’S DIRECTIVE TO PRAY for ALL MEN especially those leading us.
    John 3:16 
    16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

  • Why does no one ever talk about how even asymptomatic people can have severe organ damage from covid19? You’re going to cripple a generation with lung damage by keeping schools open, even if kids die less than adults.

    And people like to tout how “under 20s only have a 0.2% death rate!”
    There are roughly 56 million school aged kids in the USA. 56 million * 0.002 is 112,000 dead children. That isn’t even including teachers, half of which are over 50.

    What number of dead children is worth it?

  • What happen to the students who has asthma and catches coronavirius? I have a classmate who had asthma and he catches the virus and he said he was screaming.

  • I don’t have all the references, but America is clearly doing worse than other countries, so why are we forcing schools to open when said other countries who have fewer cases aren’t.

  • Ah yes 5 year olds will reliably not eat their boogers and trade masks for funsies and like strange surfaces this year because they have the capacity to do the cause and effect thinking needed to realize these individual actions could lead to them infecting their loved ones or dying themselves because they’ve magically matured this year compared to how 5 year olds normally act.

  • The bigger problem is that there is a chance that the virus could go under genetic mutation. Which means it’s intensity could increase and reach a level where recovery would impossible.

  • No Vaccine: No School
    Not Being Dead > Emotional Distressed
    What u think wud happen to kids Emotional state when a family member dies from covid 19?

  • The sad reality is here, that no matter how much people write in the comments on a YouTube video with how much we disagree with the governments decisions, nothing will actually change until we take proper action as a united force against them. The time has come to stand up and open your eyes to what is happening here. Everyone must not send their kids back to school regardless of fines that are put in place if you don’t send them. What would you rather have, a fine of £60 or a dead relative that’s has caught covid 19 your child? Sending children back to school is the worst decision possible for our health and safety. If everyone goes along with what the government are telling us, it is without a doubt the results will be catastrophic. Please do not send your kids back to school.

  • If we are so important to the economy, then spend the money to keep us safe. I can fit 16 desks in my classroom if they are 6 feet apart. Let’s be generous and say 20. My current class sizes are maxed out at 33 in all but one of my classes. I need hand sanitizer and disinfectant spray and paper towels and when those are out, they need to be replaced by the school, not my own bank account like every previous year of my career. Plexiglass shield at every desks, masks on every face, custodians CLEANING the rooms every day, not just emptying trash cans because they are responsible for three buildings, more bus drivers and routes to spread the kids out. I don’t want to hear a single complaint about “teachers just need to go back to work like the rest of us” until we are given every single protection that everyone else has been afforded during this time. Imagine telling a grocery clerk they have to pay for their own plexiglass shield or have to stay unpaid after their shift to disinfect the store. THAT is what teachers are being asked to do and it is both unfair and unsafe. You want kids back in school? Write, call, send messenger pigeons to your congress member to get us emergency funding. Otherwise sit down.

  • I am teenager. I don’t even know why I am watching this.
    My school district is being “ safe and not opening fully. The parents and students choose to stay online or blending learning ( onsite). This options are only for Kindergarten -12. Pre-K ( only in one elementary school and separated buildings )
    Online school:
    Primary: will have scheduled zoom including assiagined teachers. With all pull our classes
    Secondary: will have to keep track on google classroom for their assigned teache
    Therapy services is aslo allow online for special needs
    They will have to take test in school zone and not home do to cheats and parents have provided them transportation.

    Blending Learning ( onsite): You have to wear mask if you’re older than 10 years old and don’t have any problems with masks. Face shield isn’t required and dusted scarf are allowed.

    Both of them:
    Semester options
    Test held onsite

    I think… The parents wants to send there school can Blending Learning and those don’t and can’t should go on online school for a semester options by doing Google from. The parents who opt Blending Learning should teach kids into wear mask correct way and parents should bring their own masks and water bottle and tell your kids to take a shower. Online school is for safety of children, parents, and teachers. Then we can resend a from to chose to stay online/ blending or dropped out of Blending Learning/ online School.

    That what my school district is doing it. It’s not going against the president as well not going with president.

  • Trump’s administration needs to stfu! They have obviously never been in a classroom, to see the kids playing tag in the playground, shouting “You’ve got the corona”.

  • As of now US kids ages 5-14 have seen only 14 deaths related to Covid-19. Compare that to flu, drownings and suicides. People die everyday it’s time for this madness to end reopen schools, play sports, let’s get on with our lives.

  • Home schooling is safer i don’t think it’s worth the risk to go back to school and if they start dieing who is gonna be accountable?
