When the Coronavirus pandemic began, schools closed to avoid spreading the illness. Some big cities, which were hit hard by the virus, closed their school districts early. Eventually, entire states ordered their schools closed.
Some states and school districts plan to keep schools closed until the end of the year. Others said that schools must open in the fall. President Trump said that schools need to reopen for the wellbeing of all students. The data seemed to show that students were missing out on important parts if life like socialization, physical exercise, and even proper nutrition from being out of school.
The Debate Morphs

Different states are planning to open schools at different times, as worries about the virus differ depending on where you are. Do you think it’s important for kids to get back to school, is is it better to keep waiting?
