“COVID-19 didn’t ‘shutter schools.’ Humans — adult humans in positions of authority — did that. After nearly three years, education is one of many institutions that haven’t recovered from the damage done by dumb decisions American politicians and bureaucrats made early on and then kept making, all while hopping from foot to foot screeching ‘BUT SCIENCE!’ at anyone who pointed out the costs and problems involved. Instead of admitting that the decisions they made were, in most cases, massive unforced errors based on panic and political power grabs rather than on sound science or any previously existing conception of ‘public health,’ the people who made those choices keep trying to shift blame.” (09/01/22)
