How on earth will this prevent the spread of COVID?
In a recent press conference, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) outlined a plan which will allow kids to go back to school 2-3 times per week and the city will also provide childcare to 100,000 families so parents can work.
According to Breitbart, De Blasio insisted there is going to be “blended learning approach, where the typical child goes two or three days a week to school, in the classroom.”
Adding, “But so many parents have also said that they can’t make it work if they don’t get more childcare. We have been working at — since we saw the results of that survey. And we obviously knew this was an imperative. We’ve been trying to find every way to create new childcare and to build it from scratch, honestly. Because we’re having to create something that didn’t exist before on this scale to accommodate a new need and a new reality. We initially said, how much could we do? And we thought maybe we could do 50,000 childcare seats. And then we realized, with a blended format, that actually turns into 100,000 families that can be served. We’re going to use every conceivable space: community centers, libraries, cultural organizations, whatever we can find in communities.”
