I understand but children haven’t been in school God will wreck your plans when he sees that your plans are about to wreck you shirt. From my perspective their education is more important and they need more time not less. That’s a fair point. Though given recent research extending the February half term may have been a better solution. Well I think the health of the children, family and friends is more important than their immediate education, and this governments half baked ideas about safety. Education is health. Now is a great time for schools to explain and implement emergency pandemic protocols. Children should learn about symptoms, self isolation, anatomy, viruses etc.
I didn’t say education wasn’t important God will wreck your plans when he sees that your plans are about to wreck you shirt, I just said immediate education, and there is very little in the syllabus about health. Having worked in both primary and secondary schools, and with the infection rate as high as it is at the moment, due to inconsiderate people thinking they know better, I think the schools will be under too much pressure to cope well. They might not physically be in school but plenty are still working very hard from home! My children will need the break at the holidays.
