But schools will stay opened. Only in the US have we decided that schools must be closed.

Right because we all know schools contribute most to the spread of the virus  ;).

How many places in the US have closed schools?

California
New York in certain areas
 
I donít know about other areas, just saying we are basically the only country that has decided that schools should be the first to close.

As a country, though, that's just not true. That's like saying the US bans straws and plastic bags.

Absolutely! You wouldn't want to be called a dumba$$ just because your neighbor eats soup with a fork.

CNN is fake news. The states I'm familiar with are NY & NJ, the overwhelming majority of school districts are closed. By looking at that graph you would think most schools are open.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

There's many more (see states with partial closure such as OR, WV, DE.  DC even has full closure ordered). Besides for that, states with No order leave it to the discretion of districts or counties or whatever.  For example, just last week Boston school system, which is quite large, switched to remote. I'm sure there are others like that as well within No order states.

Even in NYC, one of the only major cities to reopen schools, only ~25% of students were ever in a classroom this year.

It definitely seems to be the mentality of all or most left leaning states to run to close schools first. Unfortunately, most ppl here live in such states so that's what we're seeing and feeling  ;D.
