1. Do you think K-12 schools should have in-person classes this fall?
Yes, at full capacity.
Yes, at partial capacity.
No, online only.
2. If yes, why?
Online classes are not effective.
Parents need the childcare that school provides.
There is no reason not to have in-person classes.
Other (please specify)
3. How many child deaths from COVID-19 nationwide are acceptable in order to keep schools open to in-person classes?
None. No child deaths are acceptable in order to have in-person classes.
Up to 100 kids dead.
Up to 1000 kids dead.
Up to 10,000 kids dead.
Up to 100,000 kids dead.
As many as needed to maintain in-person classes.
4. In a June 23rd article by Business Insider, the death rate of children age 5-17 from COVID-19 is listed as 0.03% (based on data from the CDC). The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) estimated that there were 56.6 million K-12 students in the US for the fall of 2019. Given these statistics, if half of the kids become infected with COVID-19, about 8,500 would die. Is this an acceptable trade-off to keep schools open with in-person classes?
5. Would this statistic still be acceptable if one of your children/grandchildren/nieces/nephews/some kid you care about dies from COVID-19 due to in-school exposure?
No, it would no longer be acceptable.
No, it never was acceptable.
6. Do you think K-12 students can practice proper hygiene (thorough and frequent hand washing, constant and appropriate mask-wearing, not touching their faces, etc) and proper social distancing (6 feet apart)?
Yes to all.
Yes to some.
No, not likely.
7. Will your child attend in-person classes this fall?
Yes, if available.
Yes, but I will only allow it at partial capacity.
No. We're doing online only and/or homeschooling.
