Possible school and campus closures

One thing that frustrates me about universities and colleges that don’t close their campuses, is that administrators are likely looking to the public schools for a cue, in a cover-your-ass type move. But that is exactly wrong. However hard it will be to close college campuses and switch to remote learning, it is FAR harder for public schools to close, with a host of consequences for children and working parents.

“Officials in NYC said they would close public schools only as last resort, in part because about 114,000 students in school system are homeless and may have nowhere else to get hot meals, medical care, or even a place to wash their dirty laundry.”

This country.
