Rejected petition Close schools, colleges and universities and return to online education (2022)

Schools, and other places of education, should close and return to online education. This is due to the increase in coronavirus cases.

More details

Places of education have struggled with stopping the spread of the coronavirus. As the spread rate increases we should take precaution and move back to online learning so that teachers do not become ill and learning is not as disrupted.

Schools and universities have little to no ventilation and have been using windows to allow for air flow. The cold temperatures have led to an increase in illness within both the teaching and student body. Online learning would prevent this.
