Discussions have begun about how Columbia Public Schools can return to a five-day week, Superintendent Peter Stiepleman told ABC 17 News on Monday.

Whether and how often students should be in the classroom has been a point of heated public debate in Columbia since the coronavirus pandemic sent classes online last spring. Middle and high school students didn't return to buildings until last month.

The area is now experiencing a major drop in new coronavirus cases. However, some argue the virus is still too prevalent for a full return to classes until students and teachers can be vaccinated.

  1. There was never any proof that they should have stopped in the first place. There was a suspicion, and they were rightfully closed. Shortly thereafter, there was abundant evidence that the young are virtually immune to any danger from the virus, and that they are not a significant vector of transmission. Such has been the case for many months. Which begs the question, why are there so many actions being taken that far from “following the science”, directly oppose it in preference of the propaganda and the censorship of legitimate science?
