There is so much controversy about school reopening. And it's hard to say who is right. There are so many arguments on both sides. But, it is understandable to be afraid.
But it seems the virus itself doesn't scare us as much as the confusing and different messages we get from different parts of our governments. Their internal disagreements are now public.
They don't speak with one voice, and we are all wondering – with so much internal debating, how do they have time to do their jobs? We need a uniform approach to this problem, and everyone needs to do their job.
Parents obviously failed to teach their kids.
Kids cough like this in public and the government thinks it’s a good idea to open schools back up. Yeah ok pic.twitter.com/ySh1vJJdFa— Emo Florist 🕸 (@Kimberlyquin98) July 9, 2020
Hey, I am not in school. I don’t want to do the math.
My high school couldn’t even keep soap and toilet paper restocked. You really think they’re going to be able to sanitize schools properly to reopen?— purple haired spooky bandit (@Winklahh) July 9, 2020
It’s good to know the powerful United States economy depends on public schools.— Michael Smith Supt (@principalspage) July 8, 2020
Now explain why public schools have to hold fundraisers, bake sales, and have students donate Kleenex.
Maybe we deserve all this?
The speed we went from “Teachers are underappreciated, we should pay them triple!” to “Get in the classroom and watch the children so we can get back to work, even if it kills you” is quite breathtaking.— BOO-dle 👻 🏳️🌈 (@stoodle) July 8, 2020
Can’t keep 900 baseball players safe with almost unlimited resources but sure we can protect millions of kids jammed into schools where teachers have to raise money on GoFundMe for like pencils and shit.— Joshua Holland 🔥 (@JoshuaHol) July 27, 2020
Something that has become so disappointingly obvious as we try to safely reopen schools is the # of people who seem to think teachers are just cogs, as opposed to human beings with families, needs, and fear about the future. The school reopening debate needs to be about them too.— Richie Taylor (@richietaylor) July 29, 2020
Just say no.

Social distancing for adults only.
school board: it’s completely safe for kids to go back to school— Laurazewitch (@andlikelaura) July 17, 2020
teachers: so you met in person to discuss this
school board: lmao what are you nuts of course not
Young children pay the price of our mistakes.
We closed schools and made everyone except essential workers stay home. Kids didn’t get COVID. Once again, many assumed this meant they *couldnt* and now kids are sick & dying.— Ellie Murray (@EpiEllie) July 25, 2020
We CANNOT keep making this mistake! We don’t learn what’s possible, solely from what has happened!! https://t.co/5RFRv9m1yr
The buildings were closed.
Could we stop saying “reopen schools” and instead say “reopen school buildings”? Because there were a lot of us teaching and guiding student learning, coaching, giving feedback...for months after buildings closed.— Jennifer Ansbach (@JenAnsbach) July 9, 2020
Spaghetti straps kill, not Covid19
so schools can’t force students to wear a mask... but they can force girls to cover up when they wear a spaghetti strap tank top??? ok.— jocelyn vlores (@notjoss) July 15, 2020
