Poll, 6 in 10 Americans Oppose Reopening Schools In Person
As the president of USA Donald Trump is urging state and district to reopen the schools and start in-person classes in order to uplift the economy of the country but 61% parents and guardians of students are opposing it and believe that it can harm their kids and reopening schools can become the hazardous to them and also for the economy for America.
Reopening schools in this circumstance is just like spreading fuel in a tough time as it can increase the number of COVID-19 cases in the country. A majority of the poll in each region of the country is opposing Trump’s plan to reopen the school while some believe that it is the situation when the kids shouldn’t go out of their homes to get themselves away from the infection and the government is planning to reopen schools just because of the economy.
As per the doctors, children under 10 must not go out of their residence to control the spread and not get infected as their immunity system is not much strong to fight with the virus. The surprising data shows that 84% of Democrats are opposing the government’s decision in comparison to 63% of Independence and 30% of Republicans.
According to the poll organised by Black Voters, Hispanic Voters, women the least confidence with Democrats revealed that they are afraid to send their kids to the schools and don’t believe that it would be safe to K-12 students to start attending classes in-person. As the COVID-19 pandemic is soaring in the country and parents can’t put their kids’ life into the danger.
The result comes in the form of school principals, teachers, school superintendent and educators who are struggling to reopen schools once again for around 50 million students who enrolled themselves in the private schools of the country.
In this time opening schools seems the biggest problem and it’s been over six months to the school closing. As we have seen last week, In Cherokee, in Georgia, schools were reclosed once again after opening just a week later, where more than 3,600 people including students, teachers and other school staff-tested positive.
More than 1,100 staff members have been advised to quarantine. Masks and the social distancing in the school were not compulsory that became one of the biggest reason for spreading the outbreak in the country. Stay connected with Global News journal to get fresh updates.
