Dear Powers-That-Be in NYC education-

Our NYC kids of all ages have suffered enough. Aside from the current effects of this YEAR of remote schooling for K-12 students for whom this is completely developmentally inappropriate, these kids will suffer lifetime effects on their earnings, health and lifespan due to the loss of education they have experienced. https://www.oecd.org/education/The-economic-impacts-of-coronavirus-covid-19-learning-losses.pdf

After spring break, EVERY NYC public school child who wants to be in school should be in a school building at a minimum of 2 days per week CONSISTENTLY through the end of the school year. 

To achieve this:

#1. END remote accommodations. The vaccines are effective, and along with masking, provide adequate protection.

#2. Change the distancing requirement to 3 feet as per WHO and MOST other developed nation protocols.

#3. Remove unnecessary restrictions on the use of school space, and excess cleaning requirements which science DOES NOT SUPPORT as necessary.

#4. NO school closures unless there is a CLEAR OUTBREAK (not 2 positives) in a building.

ACCESS TO SCHOOL FOR KIDS is an issue of public health, safety and equity.
