I wrote a an article on why teachers shouldn't feel forced to go back to school And I 100% still stand by that. It's not fair that major athletes are opting out of the season because they aren't comfortable. Which I would like to add is okay too. But what isn't okay is that they are praised for it while teachers are basically getting told to get over it.
But besides teacher we need to talk about students too. So many people had high hopes about going back. I honestly didn't. Trust me I was wishing but I tried to be realistic. If you really think about it going back to school right now isn't the best decision. Virtual learning is going to be our new normal for a bit. I just don't get how the spread if a virus will be contained in a elementary school, high school, and even college. I don't see how living with multiple other people who have different schedules helps this virus.
Now I agree we have to get back to normal someday but that someday is not now. Kids will be wanting to "trade" their masks just like their lunches. College kids will want to find loopholes in the rules. Let's be honest they will try it. And not to mention who wants to wear a mask during class. I personally think that might be difficult. And no I am not complaining and being anti mask. Wear your mask people please.
I so badly want to spend my last year of college at the library with my friends, the student cafe with my roommates, and just being in college. But I also understand my health is just as important. If you don't believe moving in to college right now is the right move then trust your gut. And to the people who need to go to college to not be home then go. I understand that dorms are better than home for some people, and thats okay. Be cautious my friends. Wear a mask and wash your hands.
