More direct than my typical. In on schools.

Cuomo: "Where does the virus mainly transmit? Schools" Actual data: "data on almost 200,000 kids in 47 states from the last two weeks of September revealed an infection rate of 0.13 percent among students and 0.24 percent among staff."

Schools Aren't Super-Spreaders - important article on emerging data on the consequences for COVID of school openings. Not nearly as bad as some feared. Pass it on. ⁦
I would very much like this to be true! But I'm not entirely persuaded that the data referenced in this article is robust enough to support the headline.
“Schools do not, in fact, appear to be major spreaders of COVID-19...Predictions about school openings hurting the broader community seem to have been overblown as well. “
Hey remember when there was that fierce debate two months ago about whether to open schools, and the lockdowners and unions went into hysterics about how much death there would be? They were absolutely wrong. The data is in. Open ALL THE SCHOOLS NOW
Oh so it turns out Democrat governors and teachers unions are destroying your children’s mental health, intellectual development, career prospects, sports interests, for NOTHING. #OpenSchoolsNow Schools Aren't Super-Spreaders - The Atlantic
“We are starting to get an evidence-based picture of how school reopenings and remote learning are going (those photos of hallways don’t count), and the evidence is pointing in one direction. Schools do not, in fact, appear to be a major spreader of COVID”
Schools, run well, don’t appear to be major amplification points. At Resolve, we’ve been saying since March, we must keep in-person learning as available as possible. Requires reducing spread in community, adapting school environment and policies. 11/13
100% correct article by in This is the only conclusion I reach having reviewed the data... The facts are clear. Public schools must re-open. It is public health sanctioned inequality Shameful [thread]
“It’s now October. We are starting to get an evidence-based picture of how school reopenings and remote learning are going, and the evidence is pointing in one direction. Schools do not, in fact, appear to be a major spreader of COVID-19.”—
I am really surprised to see this article in the Atlantic, not to mention convey conclusiveness about something we have limited data on. What data does exist has many limitations and biases. Too many, in fact, to make this type of assertion.
Open the schools! I wonder where the “listen to the science” people will go when the science doesn’t support their fearmongering or their chosen narrative?
Looks like was hacked today; some real news got out.
This is really encouraging news from the US Consistent with what’s been seen in the published literature to date Emphasises how the risks of schools being open in the majority of circumstances is outweighed by the benefits of kids being in school
Important summary of the provisional but growing evidence schools are not super-spreaders
As usual dropping truth bombs. The tide does seem to be turning, a bit, in the media toward pressing for schools to open. Yet policy in blue states has yet to follow
Yet more evidence that schools can safely reopen, and in fact, many private schools already have.
"We are starting to get an evidence-based picture of how school reopenings and remote learning are going.... the evidence is pointing in one direction. Schools do not, in fact, appear to be a major spreader of COVID-19." Smart piece from

"One might argue...any risk is too great, that schools must be completely safe before ... reopen[ing] them. But this approach ignores the enormous costs to children from closed schools." 's master class on cost/benefit, Covid & schools.
“One might argue, again, that any risk is too great, and that schools must be completely safe before local governments move to reopen them. But this approach ignores the enormous costs to children from closed schools.”

Especially in a county like mine with low positivity (currently 2.17 %), at what point is it clear that many public school closures have been non-sensical? And ambiguity or no ambiguity, and have leaned forward on this issue early on.
Evidence from 200k children over 47 states here in the US suggests schools are NOT the covid super spreader environments we feared they were. Schools here in Carlsbad, CA are still closed.
New data show schools have lower Covid transmission rates than expected
Would THE Science care to comment? Or is it too soon? Maybe in 3 weeks or so? "The evidence is pointing in one direction. Schools do not, in fact, appear to be a major spreader of COVID-19," writes
"Democratic governors who love to flaunt their pro-science bona fides in comparison with the anti-science Trump administration don’t seem to be aware of this growing body of evidence."
Schools are not, in fact, spreading the virus
Emily Oster has been doing some of the very best work out there gathering relevant information about COVID and kids.
Just gonna leave this here...
Open the schools. Let's get to tackling the real problems with education instead of the fake ones. Schools aren't super spreaders. Full stop.

I've been particularly swayed by work of the brilliant . She brings evidence, not bluster, to this topic. Its inspiring She's actually tracking data (!!). Yup, its not perfect. But its the best we have Read her in
. has a good piece suggesting schools aren’t big sources of spread. if that’s so, what are explanations for the timing of Europe’s resurgence (even in places like Spain, where weather would not yet have driven people indoors)?
Hey, Teacher. Leave those kids alone.
Talking about equity, but acting to exacerbate inequity: "The children affected by school closures are disproportionately low-income students of color. Schools are already unequal; the unequal closures make them more so."
