Given the near-impossibility of doing hybrid teaching well (at least with the resources most teachers are given), keeping a virtual-schooling option in place in the fall is condemning kids to a much worse learning experience, with no real public-health justification.
If school systems want to set up all-virtual-learning classes (which some had pre-Covid), that's a potential solution. But the research on all-virtual schools is not reassuring: student/teacher ratios are higher, graduation rates far lower, and achievement often declines.
