Letter to the editor: School planning questioned

I don’t know who needs to hear this. Apparently, our leaders will not. How do you justify opening the college or schools when you are holding all of the planning meetings virtually? Does it make sense to anyone that our local government is not open for business as usual, that our democratic processes are conducted at a distance, that many of our local businesses cannot fully reopen, but we are allowing hundreds of students to be together in one place? Clearly, Capitalism is at play here because none of this makes sense. If it doesn’t make sense, it’s usually about money.
