A very short rant about school closures during the pandemic

I don’t know whether schools should be open right now.

What I do know is that remote learning is far inferior to in-person schooling, and that school is really important for kids. And that as a society, we should have tried to keep schools open at almost any cost.

Since schools were closed while restaurants and bars were open, our priorities were terribly wrong. The pandemic has involved hard choices to begin with, and decisions like this make the choice about whether to keep schools open impossible.
