CDC Dir. "Keeping schools closed poses greater health threat to children than reopening"
quote:

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield on Thursday said he believes shuttered schools present a greater public health issue than reopening schools.

"I'm of the point of view as a public health leader in this nation, that having the schools actually closed is a greater public health threat to the children than having the schools reopen," he said to Steve Clemons of The Hill.


quote:

"I think really people underestimate the public health consequences of having the schools closed on the kids," Redfield reportedly said. "I'm confident we can open these schools safely, work in partnership with the local jurisdictions


Fauci stated 2 weeks ago at a public hearing that he believes schools should open this fall.

The whole discourse over reopening schools always makes me think of this scene from Walk Hard:

Wait. So, are we listening to the CDC now? I've lost track.

I'm sure he's changed that position by now

Many people are simply imprisoning their children.

In a few years, there's going to be an explosion of mental health issues faced by these young pawns in a Political game.

Who are we listening to? If not cdc and Fauci.

Schools officials are clearly basing decisions off of media hysteria with no regard to data or the consequences of children staying home.

Is he talking about mental health of the children, or medical health?

All in the name of “safety”. But no one will define what “safety” is and that’s intentional. Just keep your mask on and shut up.

He's not wrong. You can't just keep kids locked inside a house forever. They need to socialize and to learn.

And the economy won't properly restart until kids can get back to school. If we want to ensure that the economy is down, we'll have depression, drug use, increases in drinking, suicides, and obesity to deal with.

Why do people make a claim like this but then don’t elaborate as to WHY keeping schools closed is a threat to public health.

It annoys the crap out of me when I’m reading an article.

It was the same with the article about banning Tiktok. The whole article kept saying how problematic Tiktok is and how much of a threat it is to national security, but never once elaborated as to specifically why it’s such a threat.

Greater than what? I’m open to listening to alternative view points, but this guy needs to address why it’s a greater health risk to leave kids at home.

Brah I've been saying the same thing.

Unlike the school aged children, thankfully (I guess and hope) my son is only 10 months old and was born just a few short months before all of this started.

I'm constantly giving my wife ultimatums like, " I'm telling you, I'm taking him to Wal Mart to browse and people watch. Frick this virus! Frick the mayor! I'm not having a Jeffrey Dahmer on my hands!"

Only since it has become crystal clear that he should be A-OK here recently have I started following through on those ultimatums, and we have made it a point to get him around other kids at pool parties and other safe, government-sanctioned events because, like I said in a highly-downvoted post back in the spring when it was really popping off, this "game" is going to affect this country (and world) in ways going in the future that we couldn't (and still can't) fathom, and the effect that it has on the psyche of a generation of children- especially young children who are in school- could very well be one of them.

Or not.

Who knows?

One thing I do know is that the year 2020 will be the cutoff/beginning point for a new, named generation just like 9/11.

Regardless, it's not good for the most sociable creature of them all, especially the youngsters, to have socialization stripped from them for 18 months straight- ESPECIALLY if it was all for fun and political games. Raising kids is not all that different than raising up a highly trained gundog, and the basis of ALL dog training starts when they are pups, and the foundation of them being productive, enjoyable comrades going into the future begins and ends with socialization.

Why would a human being be any different? They wouldn't, and they're not. Au contraire, socialization has been the bedrock for all of man's most advanced civilizations since the beginning of time, and at a young age every little bit counts.

I hate a damn politician.

A reporter from LA stated that around 40,000 high school students (mostly minorities) didn't even log in one time for their virtual classes during the spring.

You're forcing parents to choose between their jobs and kids by making kids stay at home. That in and of itself is devasting for families.

Single moms from predominantly minority poorer communities now have their kids at home, they probably don't even have the equipment to do school from home and them being home is a distraction.

It's truly not hard to think why kids staying home would be a bad thing.

Your also depriving kids of social interaction something that's very key in their development as they grow.

Some of it is justified. Theres talk of having kids wear masks, sit far apart, not interact with each other directly. Trying that with a room of 5 year olds is going to be a total shitshow. Those kids need socialization and they need to run around outside for a little while every day. It's going to be very unproductive.

Don't they know home school kids are smarter? Why aren't we implementing a government training program for kids to turn them into killing machines to take over the world.
