Social distancing for infants: This Site never tires of showing this image of one school’s attempt to impose social distancing on children who will have no idea what it is or why it is necessary, and who will be deeply upset at being told to stay away from their friends.

The Guardian and the Mirror have led with headlines that are overly optimistic for the Tory government’s school plans, in the opinion of This Writer.

A million children is about half of all those in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 who could return under lockdown easing – and about 49 times more than were likely to be sent by parents, according to This Site’s own (unscientific) poll.

Of the 532 respondents (at the time of writing), 528 said they would not send a child back to school at the whim of the UK’s apparently homicidal government. Only four said they would.

Here’s a preview of the front pages:

The Mirror article states:

Worried parents are expected to keep at least a million eligible primary pupils at home today as schools allow more children to go back to classes.

That is around half of those in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 who could return under lockdown easing – in a major blow to Boris Johnson ‘s hopes of getting back to normal before the summer break.

And headteachers predicted more than one in five teachers will be forced to work from home due to health conditions, their age or having ­vulnerable family members.

The school-or-no-school division across the country became apparent yesterday as the Prime Minster was criticised over shambolic planning – with ministers producing a blueprint for reopening schools on May 12 and then changing it 41 times.

This Writer is looking forward to finding out how many children actually turn up.

But considering the Tory government’s current penchant for … mislaying?… the facts, we may all have to seek alternative sources for them.
