Professor Jennifer Nuzzo: “I am glad we are having this conversation” on school closures.
Professor Jennifer Nuzzo, Brown University SPH Pandemic Center, reflects on the recent March 28 hearing that the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic staged on school closures. The subject remains “a political football.”
But “we now better understand the potential harms. We have not all suffered the same harms.” Is progress possible? Not clear, given how toxic the politics has become. Need to “take down the heat.” “We need a national plan for schools’ recovery.”
