Quote from: Fambo Number Mive on August 31, 2021, 04:29:08 PMI know schools in Scotland have already gone back, but schools in much of the rest of the UK will go back either this week or next week (it varies in England with some schools such as those in Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle going back on the 6th according to the Metro).I know that schools in Scotland still require masks in the classroom but not sure about schools in the rest of the UK. It would make sense for pupils and teachers who are not medically exempt to be required to wear masks except when eating or drinking, but when has Williamson of England ever been sensible, for example.These CO2 monitors I am reading about - so they will tell the teacher when there is not enough oxygen in the classroom so they will open windows? What about classrooms where ventillation is not adequate? What about on cold and/or rainy days, especially during December to February? These CO2 monitors seem like a sticking plaster and an excuse for the governments to say they are doing something.I hope most parents will get their children to wear masks when they are at school (unless medically exempt) and we do not see any anti-mask protests outside schools like there were in the USA.

Quote from: Drygate on September 02, 2021, 06:56:49 PMThe kids shouldn't be punished for the incompetence of the government though.Weren't people talking about repurposing more spacious buildings like church halls for class rooms back in day (early 2020)? I'm sure there are plenty of reasons why it's a bad idea but there must be a way to make in person learning safer than doing away with bubbles?
Quote from: Zetetic on September 02, 2021, 09:42:43 PMThe lack of a forced social environment outside the family is likely a significant issue for many children at this point, for all the problems of school social environments.
Quote from: jamiefairlie on September 02, 2021, 09:06:35 PMThat's why I said it should be hybrid. Having kids who have good home setups stay at home allows those that don't to have a safer environment at school.
Quote from: jobotic on September 02, 2021, 09:48:47 PMSo when they had cases in their classes before the summer they had to isolate at home BUT if I had it I could happily send them into school to spread the fucker around? (I wouldn't, they'd stay at home, I'm not spreading it on Johnson's behalf).
Quote from: MojoJojo on September 03, 2021, 01:11:53 PMThe reality is kids in school are going to get covid, and it's not really clear what closing schools would achieve.
