I think the biggest pressure on governments / school districts is not from parents who are overly concerned about their kids missing a few months of school. The pressure is from working parents who are struggling to take care of their kids when they have to stay at home because schools are closed.

This is the main issue. Childcare is expensive and the quality of care is inconsistent, at best.

Not the old fashion way like you and I can, now the cash registers do it for them.  :o
I have a uncle how has offered money to cashiers if they could tell him how many nickels there are in a quarter. I don;t think he has had to pay out.

I know at times when paying cash I have added coins to get less change or just get bills, their confusion is telling. 
President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

We shouldn't be surprised that politicians of all parties aren't interested in what's best for people, but saving their jobs.

Opening schools in a place like NY will be a disaster.
