Schools need better ventilation if they're expected to reopen

I have more than one appealing children.

  • My child is the oldest at eight-years-old, followed by his younger sibling who is just more than four-years-old.

It’s nice that they’re not too far apart in age, while still maintaining a healthy difference in age so they’re not fighting as aggressively or as often when with a single another. They still fuss from time to time, however I’m happy to see my child embrace his responsibility as an older sibling when he looks after his younger sibling. I enjoy them with all of my heart, as well as I haven’t been more terrified for their health than I am right now. I can’t assume I was forced to send them back to school. It’s hard to homeschool when both parents work, as well as neither of us can afford to get a private instructor. Even if both of us could, who’s to say that the instructor or tutor wouldn’t be a source of potential COVID exposure themselves? I recognize that children are less likely to develop any kind of symptoms to COVID, however they can be silent carriers as well as infect older family members without realizing they have been exposed. Luckily neither my husband nor I have pre-existing conditions or lung flu symptoms, however we’re still sad about the entire family’s health. If they’re going to force us to send our kids back to school, the federal government needs to step up as well as give relief funding to improve ventilation systems inside schools. Instead, they’re a bunch of lying cowards that would rather break their own rules to rush a Supreme Court nomination a single week out from an election while offering a relief package that amounts to a tote full of breadcrumbs. All the while they resort to blaming their failures on the other side who have spent weeks trying to get the senate to even vote on a modern stimulus package. It’s maddening to live in America right now, especially with the fear of more than three more years of this never ending nightmare.
