To think schools should be shut during lockdown.

So shutting down everything but keeping schools open.AIBU to think that a lockdown should involve schools closing as well.Have been about six cases in my dds secondary zero social distancing and is just defeating the object of a lockdown as it has now been proven that schools,colleges etc can easily spread the virus.

Why don't you write to the Prime Minister with your findings?

No. Hope that helps.

It’s very tricky. Ideally, yes as that would reduce the rate quicker but the negatives for children are very serious. I’m in favour of the rota system and I work in primary.
Ilovegreentomatoes · 31/10/2020 19:56
Obviously not a popular opinion then!
Nicknacky · 31/10/2020 19:57
Do people realise there is a coronavirus section?
TwoZeroTwoZero · 31/10/2020 19:57
No. I seriously hope that schools remain open for as long as possible.
Ilovegreentomatoes · 31/10/2020 19:57
But the current set up in schools is not working really think we should be looking into blended learning at the very least.
Nicknacky · 31/10/2020 19:57
And no I don’t think schools should be shut. H and I wouldn’t be home to do homeschooling.
MumbleJunction · 31/10/2020 19:58
No no, no no no no, no no no no nooo nooo
OhTheRoses · 31/10/2020 19:59
Nope. And they shouldn't have stayed shut beyond 8th May last time.
Nicknacky · 31/10/2020 19:59
ilovegreentomatoes I assume you or your h are at home during the week?
GirlCrush · 31/10/2020 19:59
op....i agree with you!
but we will see....
TheGriffle · 31/10/2020 19:59
No. Our children need to be educated. In school. Not stuck inside, in front of the tele 5 days a week while their parents try and work.
MrsTerryPratchett · 31/10/2020 19:59
Who will be home schooling your children OP? And what do you do for a living?
WanderingMilly · 31/10/2020 19:59
As Benji said above; ideally schools should shut, it will reduce the rates much quicker. But so difficult to do as it impacts on so much..... Personally I'd like to see schools close too or else not bother with lockdown at all. But most don't agree with me except the unions....

MyChemicalMummy · 31/10/2020 20:00
No they should not shut! We've has none in our school and our social distance works in ours
ShandlersWig · 31/10/2020 20:00
Both DH and I have to work outside the home. What would we do with them for 4 weeks!
And yes, there have been odd cases in our schools but they never developed into clusters so somethings working.

YABU. There are vulnerable children who slip through the net without the support of school. I see it in my work all the time.
Nicknacky · 31/10/2020 20:01
I would put money on those who want schools to close either don’t work or they or their partner work at home.
Ilovegreentomatoes · 31/10/2020 20:01
I work in childcare so no I won't have the luxury of being kept safe working from home.
