Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Under the government's 5 stage plan, schools are not scheduled to reopen until September, with the possible exception of final year secondary school students sitting their final exams which determine which third level course they will be offered. Children are supposed to be much less effected than their elders, and also much less likely to transmit the disease. However it is impossible to think that crowding hundreds of thousands of them into class rooms won't increase the rate of transmission. So I think it is right that Ireland, as one of the more badly effected countries, should delay school re-opening until after the summer holidays. Teaching kids the skills of remote learning isn't a bad thing either.
