The Learning Policy Institute (LPI) has flagged a Forbes commentary article written by Linda Darling-Hammond on the “masking wars”. The issue is how to implement policies based in science to keep the return to schools as safe as possible. States that have implemented these science-based policies like California have COVID-19 cases well below the national average. LPI states that relationships and learning continuity are crucial to young people’s development, so there should be a safe science-driven return to schools.
