School days, school days … or not?

“I double dog dare Donald Trump to sit in a class of 39 sixth-graders and breathe that air without any preparation for how we’re going to bring our kids back safely.” — National Education Association President Lily Eskelsen Garcia, on CNN today.

The President yesterday said the schools “must open.” But you can’t just open the schools without the proper safeguards put in place not just for the students but for their teachers, many of whom are in the high-risk pool for the virus. And money is needed to do those things.
