The Debate About School Safety

For months, the debate about opening schools amid the COVID-19 pandemic has centered on the question of whether they are safe.  In a provocative article in The Atlantic, the author writes that the debate about school safety is no longer relevant:  “Except in the few remaining regions with modest rates of viral spread, the transmission risk from and within schools is now beside the point.  So many teachers and staff members are sick, quarantining, or have stepped down that many schools trying to remain open or to reopen just do not have the personnel available to do so well.”
