In US news and current events today, Vice President Mike Pence has expressed his intention to barrell full steam a head on school reopening amid the coronavirus pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the entire economy, but school reopenings are among the biggest questions faced by America among the larger wave of COVID reopening. Reopening schools without a reopen play is a fool's errand, because school reopenings are crucial to getting our economy started again, but if a school reopening means that students and faculty are less safe, we needs a strong COVID reopening plan to make it work, and that hasn't been the strong suit of President Donald J. Trump or Vice President Pence. Much like his behavior throughout the COVID19 pandemic, President Trump is ignoring the science to suit his rushed reopening agenda. There are many questions remaining about COVID recovery and COVID reopening, and none are more urgent than schools.
