Minors with diseases could be vaccinated
The bottom line is that there is no scientific evidence to assume that schools are more at risk than other work or recreational environments of similar density. Nothing can justify keeping schools closed when at the same time restaurants, bars or shopping malls are reopened. Prolonged school closures were intended to protect adults who are at greater risk of becoming seriously ill, perhaps in vain. And given the experiences of safe reopening in countries prior to the development of vaccines, school systems need not wait for widespread community vaccination before reopening.
Parents complain about closure of Micaela School
LAW 14/1970, GENERAL LAW ON EDUCATION AND FINANCING OF EDUCATIONAL REFORM, ESTABLISHED FOR GENERAL BASIC EDUCATION, DEFINED AS A UNIFIED PERIOD OF COMPULSORY SCHOOLING, A MODEL OF SCHOOL ORGANIZATION BASED ON CENTERS WITH A MINIMUM OF EIGHT UNITS, ONE FOR EACH OF THE EIGHT GRADES OF THAT LEVEL.
IN SPITE OF THIS, MANY UNITARY SCHOOLS COULD NOT BE CONTRACTED AND CONTINUED TO OPERATE AS INCOMPLETE CENTERS, LACKING, IN GENERAL, THE MINIMUM RESOURCES IN TERMS OF TEACHERS, FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT TO ADEQUATELY MEET THE OBJECTIVES OF GENERAL BASIC EDUCATION.
CONSEQUENTLY, FAR FROM ACHIEVING THE OBJECTIVE OF REDUCING THE EXISTING DISPARITIES BETWEEN URBAN AND RURAL AREAS, THIS POLICY TENDED TO AGGRAVATE THE DEFICIENCIES OF THE LATTER, HINDERING THE EDUCATIONAL AND EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF STUDENTS AND CONTRIBUTING TO THEIR CULTURAL UPROOTING.
THE NEW FRAMEWORK ENSURES THE EDUCATIONAL CARE OF PRESCHOOL STUDENTS AND STUDENTS IN THE INITIAL AND MIDDLE CYCLES OF GENERAL BASIC EDUCATION IN THEIR LOCALITY OF RESIDENCE AND ALLOWS THE ADOPTION OF DIVERSIFIED FORMULAS FOR STUDENTS IN THE UPPER CYCLE, SUCH AS THE PERIODIC DISPLACEMENT OF TEACHERS OR OF STUDENTS FOR THE USE OF SPECIALIZED FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT.
The curriculum under debate. FORUM 2: What changes are needed
Other officials, such as the Minister of Justice, Martín Soria, who said in social networks: “The President made a State decision to preserve the lives of thousands of Argentines, he did not dictate educational policies. Using the Judiciary politically is a specialty of Macrismo, but this time they have gone too far”.The problem is not the classes, the problem is the circulation. In the AMBA on the provincial side, there are 3 million children in school. If we add family members and teachers, we reach 6 million people: half of the population of the AMBA. This circulation must be stopped – Daniel Gollan (@DrDanielGollan) April 18, 2021

And so it happened in other countries around the world. The difference with Europe and Asia, for example, is that their educational institutions resumed classes after one or two months of closure, while Colombia and other Latin American countries have been closed for more than 150 days.
The study developed by the Alberto Lleras Camargo School of Government and the School of Economics, both from the Universidad de los Andes, suggests measures to mitigate the costs of the closure and the transition to normality can be effective as soon as possible and in a decentralized manner, depending on the contexts and characteristics of each municipality and region. The opening of educational centers should not be subject to negotiation or debate; the discussion should revolve around the protocols for the return to schools and Child Development Centers (CDI), protecting those most vulnerable to the virus.
Review experiences from other countries and guidelines from organizations such as Unicef: use of masks, hand washing, physical distancing and other measures to avoid crowds (such as events, restriction of entry to adults, and staggered entry and exit times), and monitoring of symptoms. Other strategies that have been considered include the use of open spaces for academic activities. The current model is that of alternation, which proposes occupied schools that limit their occupancy to ensure the possibility of physical distance and where students take turns attending school.
