M. Carmela Epright, a philosophy professor at Furman University, and Michael Seemuller, medical director for AnMed Health Wren Family Medicine, have written an opinion piece in The Post & Courier about reopening schools amid the COVID-19 pandemic. They say children who are most impacted by not attending in-person classes include “those with learning disabilities or customized education plans; those whose families lack access to supplies or the internet; and those whose parents are unable to work from home,” among other considerations.

Epright and Seemuller suggest that more families consider at-home learning for their children to make room in schools for children most in need of in-person learning. They offer creative ways to address in-home learning using the strengths of participating families.
