There have been several protests in Rochester and buffalo about school reopening with many people weighing in on both sides. Proponents of school reopening want the option to return their children to school and use information from the cdc, pediatricians and various studies to back up their claims that the kids will be safe and anyone who is at risk should have the choice to stay home and learn online. Those on the opposite side say that opening schools will lead to increased cases and make the whole community unsafe. They demand that schools remain closed and that the government pay parents to stay home and teach their children instead of having to go back to work. Governor Cuomo is expected to release the sates guidance on school reopening later this week.
