One of the authors of this report speaks on the economic and social implications of these closures, including school meals and parents' ability to work.

Well now we know why they want schools open so bad. Not for the kids for the money! Sickening display of government greed at the cost of children's life's. America is not the place for citizens anymore. Our lives have a value only when we make them money!

Australia: Can't lose $50 Billion if you don't close schools
RadRich - 6 måneder siden
If this was the case, then billions of dollars would be lost each time school goes on break (Thanksgiving week, Christmas and New Year's break, Spring break, and Summer break.) Never once have I heard money was lost by closing school during these times.

Lol, I am a high school student and I have always wanted a distance school until I finally got it now. Lol please open the real school, it's kinda boring and hard to keep track of time and what to do with no teacher to tell you what to do. We follow the schedule and they will have a live presentation then you will be faced with 10000000000000 quetsion to answer in less than an hour.

He explained this well from an immunological, epidemiological perspective but his explanation lacked his theory on how he assessed the figures he has. I didn't see figures on the cost per person, averages based on institutions where the cost of schooling is already paid through til the end of the academic year, those who are still being paid while working from home vs those who were forced to quit, where in those numbers are factoring in people and students with disabilities, etc.
Stories told like this are not quite adding to the true information wave that we need, they are really close in territory to fear mongering. Plus, in science and in economics, we need more than 1 study. This video could have been so much more.

How would they lose money if they don’t have to fund public schools, and pay for lunches/tuition?

@Bleach co. correction PUBLIC EDUCATION is a glorified babysitting industry.

MrDom133 they’ll actually still have to pay teachers and tuition will still be paid if the school year continues at home :) but $51 million is petty cash for governments; they really only want us working to make them money even despite the health risks. This just shows that school is really only glorified babysitting:/

@Devon Teacher in my country is getting paid full monthly salary as long as they don't take a brake by them self. If the closure/brakes from the government/school doesn't matter for how long, they still get paid full.

My entire school district is at home but we have assignments everyday Monday through Friday online and all our teachers are working from home like Google classroom assignments but the teachers are still getting payed but for only 3 hours what their calling their office hours at home for us to talk to them or contact them so their still getting payed just for less time our assignments also count as our attendance if you do them if you dont your absent for the class.

Considering public schools have really become extremely low quality in the U.S., this shutdown is probably good for the kids.
