New York City Is Closing Its Schools As The Coronavirus Continues To Spread

"For everyone who's wondering why this was such a tricky choice, it is because I understand the complete cost of shutting our colleges," he said. New York City is closing its schools to impede the spread of this coronavirus, effective Monday morning, Mayor Bill de Blasio declared in a press conference Sunday evening. But on Sunday, de Blasio said it had become"time to take more dramatic steps"
De Blasio said they is possible it won't reopen until the academic year starts in the fall, although schools will be closed until at least April 20. De Blasio was facing mounting pressure from physicians, parents, officials, and teachers' unions to shut the schools, and the decision came following dozens of different nations did so. "I don't have any words for how horrible it is, however, it is now necessary," he said. Instruction will begin for all students on March 23. The town will"provide technology for every child that needs it," he said. One in ten New York City public school students have experienced homelessness in the past year, and lots of many others and these kids rely on their schools. At least 25.8 million students around the country have been affected by school closures, based on data compiled by Education Week. Of those, less than 100,000 have returned to class after cleaning steps, as some schools have reopened. New York City, the biggest school district in the usa, adds another 1.1 million pupils to that tally. The Los Angeles Unified School District, the second biggest of the nation, is set to close on Monday. And there is also the problem of what parents can do with their kids if they must go to work. While closing schools is very likely to be step in slowing the spread of COVID-19 among employees, students, and people in addition, it presents numerous issues. De Blasio said pupils would be allowed to come into school facilities to pick up meals. "For many kids, the breakfast and the lunch will be the two chief meals they get, and they get that in the college," Cuomo said in a press conference earlier on Sunday. For kids of"essential workers" -- that include first responders, healthcare, and transit employees -- childcare sites will be put up, de Blasio said. De Blasio said making the decision to close the schools is"very painful," but he was"convinced over the course of the day there was no other option."
