Children
Reopening
Clare Wenham @clarewenham - Tue Jan 12
"We know the impact of school closures falls largely on women; during the first lockdown, 41% of working women struggled to find childcare to cover their hours" Thank you @devisridhar for including women in the schools debate - this is often missing! theguardian.com/commentisfree/…

This, from @devisridhar, brilliantly lays out how schools in the pandemic are not a simple issue. Written from a UK perspective but relevant far beyond theguardian.com/commentisfree/…

Everyone wants to know if schools are safe. Having reviewed the evidence carefully over the past 10 months, it's a complex answer. My take in the Guardian: theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
