'Traumatized' children need to be in a classroom

Anthony Fauci, M.D., the presidential health policy advisor with as many critics as he has fans, told ABC News over the weekend he believes it's fine to have in-person classes.

"Close the bars and keep the schools open is what we really see," said Fauci.

The powerful teachers' unions disagree, however. They are demanding schools put a stop to in-person learning, citing a rise in coronavirus cases.

Responding to the school situation on Newsmax TV, Reason editor Robby Soave said students need to be back in classes.

"Children are being traumatized. They're being set back. They're being abandoned right now by policymakers," said Soave. "You can look at the schools that have reopened, private schools, smaller districts have opened schools, and you just don't see a lot of spread."

That goes for student-to-student spread, as well as student to teachers, said Soave.

"The health impacts for young people who get it are really negligible,” he commented, “so if you were following the science, you would reopen the schools, but we're not following the science.”

Instead, he added, a “public employee protection racket” is currently deciding the education of millions of students.
