Are we sure this is the fault of America’s worst mayor? America’s worst governor tends to call the shots in New York on all matters pandemic.
The point has been made before but bears repeating here: Planning for the fall school year and how to cope with the second wave after classes begin should have guided pandemic policy in New York and beyond *since spring.* It’s unimaginable that the country’s biggest public-school system is still figuring things out three weeks into September given how the availability of in-class instruction will dictate families’ lives for the next nine months, beginning with whether mom and dad can get back to work. And inexcusable that, rather than stick to a firm date for reopening and then adjust as infections arise, they keep scrambling people’s plans by delaying reopening at the last second.
How has this moron not been deposed yet by New Yorkers?
