U.S. Pediatricians Call For In-Person School This Fall

NPR |

The American Academy of Pediatrics’ guidance “strongly advocates that all policy considerations for the coming school year should start with a goal of having students physically present in school.”

The guidance says “schools are fundamental to child and adolescent development and well-being.” The AAP argues that based on the nation’s experience this spring, remote learning is likely to result in severe learning loss and increased social isolation.
