On the other side are parents and teachers who call for safeguards that would have been unimaginable before the coronavirus pandemic: part-time school, face coverings for all or a fully online curriculum.

The impassioned tug-of-wars have put educators in the middle of an increasingly politicized debate on how best to reopen schools this fall, a daunting challenge as infections spike in the U.S.

In an interview with Spanish-language television network Telemundo, Trump said “DACA is going to be just fine,” referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program under which young migrants have been allowed to stay in the United States temporarily.

Federal health officials will issue new guidelines for reopening U.S. schools after President Donald Trump criticized the current recommendations as tough, expensive and impractical.

The coronavirus pandemic forced nearly all public and private schools in the United States to lock their doors, and Trump is threatening to cut federal funding to schools that stay shut. 

“We want to reopen the schools. Everybody wants it. The moms want it, the dads want it, the kids want it. It’s time to do it,” Trump said in a meeting with health and education officials.
