Every day, a new school district in Northern California is announcing they are going to full remote teaching in the fall.
I suspect that similar announcements will be happening in other states, including Florida.
It’s still unclear what’s going to happen in Sacramento. I’ve previously shared my own ideas about what I think would be good to happen (see FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH, HERE’S MY THINKING RIGHT NOW ABOUT REOPENING SCHOOLS). I think it’s more likely will end up going full remote and, if we don’t start that way, or do a modified version like I write about in that post, we soon will end up that way (see I’M ORDINARILY A “GLASS HALF FULL” KIND OF PERSON, BUT NOT FOR THIS FALL – HERE’S MY PESSIMISTIC FORECAST).
Here are the articles about school reopening that I think are worth reading, and that I’m adding to THE BEST POSTS PREDICTING WHAT SCHOOLS WILL LOOK LIKE IN THE FALL:

And if those articles did not get you feeling “down” enough, here’s something else for us to worry about:
If nothing is done about this, schools need to be prepared for a massive increase in the number of homeless students https://t.co/CjxLSIghZj
