I have hired a tutor for my little boy to get ready for August when none of the kids can attend school. They will be taught at home online. It is terrible. No fresh air, no parks, no stores, no sports, no cultural activities, no dance, and no social interaction. Kids need that for healthy development. This is a world wide problem. Where are the solutions from that Orange Tan man asshole and the others who don't have plans at all?
Vaccinations are not the answer. They need to find a way of re-opening a normal school schedule. So many kids in Mexico don't have internet or computers, or tablets. They don't have the technology. If they stay home they get zero education. You can't allow kids to fall behind for a year or two til this blows over. It is not acceptable.
Incompetent assholes in charge is not going to help.
I don't think you can necessarily blame Mexico's own problem to Trump as much as I would like that . It is true, that with a more competent president it is likely that not only the US but the entire world could have been better off since everyone looks at the US for leadership.
It is sad that we are giving up that position of leadership and It will likely come back to haunt us in the future.
We are on a terrible situation, no approach is going to be perfect. Yes, kids should be in school but whether we can afford to do that is another entirely different question. We can deal with the education deficiencies and/or behavioral problems that kids might develop for missing a few months of school. After all every kid gets several months worth of vacation through the year, some get schooled, etc. That is something that is certainly not optimal (both for their development but also for their parent's sanity or even their finantial well being since some will have to either miss work, or hire tutors, or hire baby sitters, etc). What we might not be able to deal as effectively is if there is a collapse of healthcare, or if the kid gets extremely sick, or if the kid pass it to the parents/grandparents and lose a love one way earlier that they needed to, etc.
I cannot speak for mexico, but we saw it happen in the US... that we had it recently under control, we probably just needed a couple extra weeks and a strong follow up plan (e.g. open with masks and contact tracing) but instead it seems the whole country just gave up and we are reliving the whole situation. We could have been where south korea is... where europe is going.
