Alan Gottlieb looks at outdoor school. A not-inspiring aspect of the politicized reopening debate has been the lack of imagination from school leaders about and lack of support from policymakers for ways to operate schools. Instead we’ve had a debate whether or not to have school at all.

Emily Oster reports on more evidence that we may have also looked at schools the wrong way in the context of reopening.

In other words, if you want school then wear a mask and be willing to forgo some other activities.
