Star Ledger--Murphy, tell schools: You canít reopen unless you close the digital divide | Editorial

Education Week--How the CDC and Pediatricians Differ on School Reopening Guidance

Two influential public health organizationsóthe Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatricsóhave released guidelines for schools on how to safely reopen this fall during the pandemic.

How do the two sets of recommendations differ from one another? And will the CDC alter its guidelines?
