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?

Yes.
