Closed Schools and Open Borders are a Dangerous Combination

The Democrats want to close our schools and open our borders.

American families all over the country have already dealt with months of uncertainty as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and the temporary economic downturn caused by state and local stay-at-home orders. Now, millions of working parents are facing a new worry — being left out of the “V-shaped” economic recovery that’s beginning to take place because they have no way to care for their children unless schools fully reopen in the fall.

Most schools have adopted a “partial” approach to reopening, in which students only attend in person two or three days per week, with the other days reserved for virtual “learning.” This creates a difficult situation for two-parent households, and an all-but-impossible one for single parents. It also creates a highly disjointed and inconsistent learning environment — and a potentially dangerous one for children who endure abuse or neglect at home.

An entire generation of America’s children are being deprived of formal education — not only in the skills that they will need to lead successful lives, but also in this country’s common values and ideals. It would be one thing if this were a temporary sacrifice that we had to make in order to save lives, but the data indicate otherwise. Even in countries that have reopened schools most aggressively, there has been no observable increase in COVID-19 infections as a result.
