I don't think opening the schools is a good decision. First let's all focus on controlling the spreading of virus. School is not compulsory now. Don't play with the health of the students...

It is not an appropriate decision as for now the goal should be is to control the situation rather than letting it go on..

As a parent I also do not think schools should be opened until the spread is controlled. This is not a good decision.

Children tolerate covid-19 much better than adults. They rarely need hospitalization and almost no healthy child will die of covid-19. Therefore it's a good move to reopen schools. Also if more children get infected, the herd immunity will be achieved sooner and the pandemic will disappear
