POLL: Should COVID threat keep schools closed?

Exactly two weeks ago, President Trump made it clear that he wants to see kids return to school as soon as possible. A July 6th tweet left no doubt about where America's Commander-in-Chief stands on the issue.

Since then, the debate surrounding restarting classes has intensified. With the first day of school in several states supposed to be just weeks away, many parents, educators, local officials and state lawmakers are still at odds over what to do.

Despite the clear science that school-aged children face a much LOWER mortality risk from COVID-19 as opposed to the flu, millions of U.S. children may be LOCKED OUT of the classroom -- AGAIN -- this fall! Many other nations fighting the pandemic have decided to re-open schools with little to no problems or concerns. So why is America still undecided -- and divided -- about kids returning to the classroom?

Millions of Americans, especially those who support President Trump, see a clear political agenda at work. The radical Left hates our Commander-in-Chief. Far-left Democrats and others are doing everything in their power to disrupt society and our economy until Election Day. That includes keeping schools closed, even if it hurts children!

Holding kids out of school or even limiting them to half-time education in the fall could be devastating -- just like it was in the spring. Most students learn best in class, while sports and other activities keep boys and girls healthier and more connected. But is the threat of COVID-19 great enough to justify keeping children home even longer?

    Yes. Kids need to be back in a school room environment for their mental well being. It is imperative for them to get back to a normal routine as well as parents back to theirs. This lock down is BS. It’s a bad cold or virus and we have had worse before. More people have died from the common cold or flu than this so call pandemic. Anyone with underlying conditions is at risk no matter what virus or cold they are exposed to. Get this country running again.

    We need everything reopened, we never should have been shut down, yes there is a virus, but we have SARS, Swine flu, etc., something every year and we don’t shut down, this is political and a huge agenda of the left!!! It needs to be realized and stopped before we end up a communist country!!!

    The children need to be back in school. These are their important learning years. They should not be put at a disadvantage because of politics. Libs are keeping the schools closed just to hurt our President. They don’t care about our children, just taking Trump & our country down.

    It’s not that simple. I have a 5-year old, and while she is not at great risk, everyone else in my household is. And her teacher last year in TK is. Most illnesses she gets while at school only inconvenience her a little, but my elderly mother struggles and suffers a lot when she catches whatever it is.

    Yes, I want her back in school, but not if it is going to jeopardize my mother. Seniors and the immuno-compromised are as important and valuable as children.
