The majority of children in the US are not in a classroom right now, against expert guidance. These children mostly live in cities, and there is a high correlation along racial and socieconomic lines.
This. Is. A. National. Emergency.
Please act accordingly.
I'm going to share several articles and other sources on the topic. If you are reading this, please feel free to share it with your school-denier friends.

Unpopular opinion, but this constant coddling and centering of Teacher voices in the "return to school" debate is straight up classism. And racism. No other group of people have gotten the luxury of dictating their return to work and have had so much emphasis put on their safety.
Nobody said a peep when Daycare workers in NYC went back in June, taking care of children who cannot socially distance or wear masks - changing diapers, wiping noses, etc. These are people making poverty level wages with no protections.
SO. MANY. PEOPLE. are risking their health and safety right now because they need a paycheck. We are literally ignoring this elephant in the room while we pontificate about whether it is "safe" to have 8 kids spread apart in a mask in a DOE classroom. It's appalling.
