Has Anyone Asked the Kids About Pandemic Schooling?

– Julie Spray & Jean Hunleth

“What would it mean for a child to feel great about shooting a basket in gym class, but anxious about maskless kids in the locker room afterward? What would it mean for a child to feel happy about seeing her friends, until her teacher tests positive and she wonders if it was her fault? What would happen for the kid who goes to school so his mom can work when he gets sick and they both feel guilty?

These are the questions our kids are now grappling with, whether or not we are asking them.”

Spray & Hunleth, The Chicago Tribune, August 25 2020
