The most vulnerable are already going to school The dadalorian because it is my way shirt. Don’t assume privilege either. No bed house in suburbia here and a fridge stocked thanks to government vouchers. My kids will not be going back to school unitl its safe. Send your child first, it’s entirely your decision, I would not disagree on what you feel is best, but parents like me, a nurse have a choice too. I work in a school, am in my fifties and happy to go in, given that I am at greater risk than the children. As far as I am aware, no parents will be fined for not sending their children in, so it is entirely your choice. I think children who are already disadvantaged should be at school as the risks to them of not going in, far outweigh the minuscule risk of them going in. Your child, your choice.
I agree that school offers The dadalorian because it is my way shirt and a safe haven for some of our most vulnerable children. I don’t think anyone is saying that these children should not be supported some already have been. But that support must not be given at the expense of the safety of teachers and other children. Government worried that children may be in lockdown in abusive circumstances, or in household where they have no access to online learning, or poorer households where maybe it’s difficult to find the money to feed them everyday or home school them.
