Our inept leaders’ irrational decision to close NYC schools

New York City public schools close as of today, with no sign of when or even if they’ll reopen this year — or even of what might determine it. Parents can, should and will blame the woeful incompetence of Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza, as well as the conniving of the United Federation of Teachers.

Back when he was getting the UFT’s assent to any reopening at all, de Blasio bound himself to an absurd benchmark for a total shutdown: a 3 percent seven-day rolling citywide average of positive virus tests.

This is utterly unscientific and arbitrary: Testing says little about what’s happening with serious virus cases, and next to nothing about what’s going on in New York’s schools — where kids and staff alike are seeing far lower positive test rates.
