The school that Donald Trump’s son goes to will not fully open due to the concern of the coronavirus, even tho Donald Trump has announced all students to be back in schools across America by fall. The private school, St. Andrew’s Episcopal School said that it was still deciding whether to accept the hybrid schedule for the fall that would allow limited in-school education and resume all classes completely online. The school will decide early next month which procedure to follow.

In the school letter written by the head of the school Robert Kosasky, and David Brown, the assistant head it said, “We are hopeful that public health conditions will support our implementation of the hybrid model in the fall.” “As we prepare to make a decision the week of Aug. 10 about how to best begin the school year,” they added, “we will continue to follow guidance of appropriate health officials and refine both our hybrid and distance learning plans.” If the school does not choose a procedure for the hybrid model, students in grades 7 through 12 will have to rotate between on-campus and distance learning, with half of the other students doing digital learning each week. 14-year-old Barron Trump is the youngest of President Donald Trump’s five children and has spent his last three years learning at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School.

President Trump has insisted that schools fully open before the fall and if they didn’t he has threatened to coerce federal money from districts that do not but state, localities, and private schools increasingly are ignoring him. Union leaders said the St. Andrew’s circumstance should express to Mr. Trump how problematic reopening is for schools striving to balance the educational needs of their children and the health concerns if the community, staff, and students due to to to Covid-19. In the interview of Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teacher, he states “the president now has to face what every other parent in America and every other teacher in America is grappling with right now, which is: In the midst of a pandemic, how do schools keep their kids and their faculty safe?” “It’s about safety, not bluster. It’s about a plan and resources, not threats.”
Ms. Weingarten had confessed that Mr. Trump’s confrontational technique had made it difficult to find logical solutions to the crisis “Hopefully, Donald Trump will have a scintilla of empathy and consideration for what Americans are going through now that he is experiencing it himself,” she asserted. At a coronavirus meeting on Wednesday, President Trump expressed no concerns about Barron or his school-age grandchildren returning to class. “I am comfortable with that,” he stated at the meeting. “That’s possible,” he said. “That’ll be up to governors. The decisions should be made based on the data and the facts on the ground.”
President Trump has also promoted the idea to reopen quickly. “We cannot indefinitely stop 50 million American children from going to school, harming their mental, physical and emotional development,” he said. “Reopening our schools is also critical to ensuring that parents can go to work and provide for their families” he states.
