Parents of school-age kids learning from home might not be able to reclaim the dining room table any time soon.
- Many schools around the country are planning for the possibility of more distance learning in the fall because of the ongoing pandemic.
- A spokesperson for Durham, North Carolina schools, whose students have been out of school buildings since March, said "We have no illusions that COVID will be eradicated by the time the start of the school year comes up."
- The Superintendent of one of Texas' largest districts added, "As far as 2021-22, at least some part of the school year is likely still going to be pandemic response-related on the assumption that children won't have access to the vaccine, or at least many won't."
- However, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has vowed that schools there are "going to be back full-strength in September."
