Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Back to school or back to square one?

Written by
Even though the heat of mid-summer is still upon us and the coronvirus pandemic continues, back-to-school season is right around the corner. With the possible exception of mask-wearing, no topic is generating as much debate as the reopening of schools. Everyone -- leaders at all levels of government, public health experts, child welfare advocates, pediatricians, parents and teachers -- has an opinion. As a doctor, a journalist and, perhaps most importantly, as a parent to three school-age children, it may come as no surprise that I've been thinking about this, too. School reopening has become politicized. It's a source of tension within this administration, pitting those who want society to get back to normal routines as soon as possible against its own public health experts, who want to take steps incrementally.
