In this November 18, 2023 article, The New York Times editorial board writes about the impact of school closures on the learning and development of children. According to the article, “The school closures that took 50 million children out of classrooms at the start of the pandemic may prove to be the most damaging disruption in the history of American education”. It has set student progress in math and reading back by two decades and will lead to persistent challenges among children.
Editor’s Note: Can you imagine an entire generation of children growing up with no strong foundations in mathematics and language? How easy it would be for those who are dreaming of becoming world dictators to create a society of slaves if school closures continue [see CNN’s Dr. Leana Wen Says School Closures Harmful, Two Years After Leading Campaign to Close Schools, UN: COVID-shut schools in 19 nations risk ‘generational catastrophe’].
The evidence for opening schools was clear, but countries CHOSE to go against science [Read Expert panel recommends reopening of schools for young children and children with special needs, Schools in the Netherlands are reopening, and children do not have to maintain social distance, WHO: Closure of schools should be considered only if there is no other alternative, Despite open schools, no masks, no social distancing, no children died of COVID-19 in Sweden, Science shows schools must re-open for in-person learning, CDC: Risk of coronavirus in schools is small, Scientific evidence shows schools can clearly be opened, WHO Europe: Schools must be kept open this winter].
There will be no forgiveness for people and organizations who pushed for schools to be shuttered, despite the evidence pointing to the contrary. They have hastened the decline of our culture and have caused irreversible damage to our children, all for the sake of money and power.
