"Without health there is no present and without education there is no future," says President Fernández; Ademys union calls 72-hour strike.
In the current situation where vaccines are barely coming into the country, with the autumn / winter looming, it could even be that these conditions are not met until late 2021. Is it really an option to have no school for two years? It would even be disastrous from a social point of view (children can't stay forever stay at home). I would say that probably more than half of the children do not even have the technical infrastructure (room, internet, hardware) and / or support from home which is necessary to learn something from home. I believe a lot of them are already lost now after one year, forget about it when they are not in school for two years.There's no question that schools should reopen as soon as possible, however it's not possible to do it safely yet. Argentina should wait until vaccines are more widely rolled out, and at least teachers are vaccinated. Then parents who want to send children to school can do it at their own risk.
You go on and on about how Argentina is one of the worst performing countries in the world (it's your major contribution to the COVID threads), so yes, I get that you're happy to see it get worse. Let me go through the list of occupations you mention (I wasn't able to parse your second paragraph, sorry)
Teachers will generally not have PPE, will mostly be in not very well ventilated classrooms having all-day interaction with groups of 10-15 kids, and not from behind perspex shields either. Your comparisons fail.
- Doctors and nurses use (or should be using) protective clothing and equipment.
- Waiters have short interactions with customers, and are generally working outdoors at the moment.
- Checkout operators are behind perspex shields in all the supermarkets I've been in.
BTW, the kids, depending on their ages, will not be wearing masks (or wearing them like the kid in the photo here: https://www.batimes.com.ar/news/argentina/schools-in-argentina-finally-re-open-doors-for-students.phtml). So much for protocols in schools...
