My Children are in years 11 & 12. If they want to go back to school I won't stop them if only to see some of their friends.
But if they were still young, primary school children I would not send them back by any means. What affect will this have on young, impressionable children? This is a disgrace. Teachers can't even help a child who wets themselves or worse. They get sent home like naughty, dirty children or have to clean themselves... a five year old...
I wet myself in class when I was six and I still think of it occasionally in a bad way!
Although this "lockdown" (is this a riot in a high security US penitentiary?) is essentially criminal and must stop, most young children should at least look back and remember that long, strange summer holiday we had rather than actually living through a real, live dystopian experience.
