Avik Roy joined host Ben Domenech to discuss the debate over how and when to reopen schools amid government lockdowns. Roy serves as the president of the Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity and the opinion editor at Forbes.
While following realistic protocol to ensure students' safety, Roy asserts that schools must open this fall for children to have the greatest chance for success. It would be detrimental for students to not reap the mental, emotional, and physical benefits that schooling provides, he said. It also produces a large disparity between lower class and upper class children.
