Very glad they brought to light the many risks to kids if they're not in

school. It is documented that this past spring many kids simply did not participate in the online schooling--they simply dropped out, for one reason or another. And many only did it occasionally. Millions of kids have fallen behind in their education. Add to that the certainty that plenty of kids are being neglected, and physically & sexually abused in these long shut-in situations. Funny, sick Uncle Charlie, often a drunk, is sometimes the one these kids are being left with, and it's a horrible situation for the kids stuck home with some of these awful relatives. It's upsetting to even think about it. And also there are the meals some of these kids aren't getting at home. Sure, the virus is a terrible thing but I think it's outweighed by the harm being done to these children not being in school. The schools will do their very best to do proper cleaning & keep kids healthy. Those 6 hours a day are the safest hours of the day for too many of these kids. The pediatricians are right.
