In both of those posts, you'll see the words "I don't know." Let me translate for you: ANI LO YODEAH. ICH VAIST NISCHT. YO NO SE.

All I was saying was we're comparing apples to oranges. Schools in the US are open on a National level. They are then ruled by state, county, and city/local laws and regulations. I DO NOT KNOW how things work in Europe, but it would make sense to me if they have similar, more localized, structure in place. If someone has data on that, we can compare.
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

New York City’s entire public school system will shutter on Thursday, Chancellor Richard A. Carranza wrote in an email to school principals, in a worrisome signal that a second wave of the coronavirus has arrived. Schools have been open for in-person instruction for just under eight weeks.

The shutdown — which was prompted by the city reaching a 3 percent test positivity rate over a seven-day rolling average — is perhaps the most significant setback for New York’s recovery since the spring, when the city was a global epicenter of the outbreak.

A delta between public and private schools isn't sustainable. More likely that private schools will close than public schools will open. The numbers aren't going down anytime soon.

Private schools are gonna have a fit. 2 weeks ago he was pushing a surgical approach when our numbers were a bit worse than the region, and now suddenly that our numbers are better he's pushing a nondiscriminatory nuclear approach.

Tough call. Everyone knows that the public school closures are a union cave in that is not based on science by any account (public schools have a positivity rate well under 1%) and is harming the students. De Blasio and Cuomo boxed themselves into a corner when they negotiated with the unions months ago. It’s unlikely there will be any appetite to close private schools unless numbers rise dramatically.
