Some schools in the U.S. and other nations have re-opened as the COVID-19 pandemic improves in parts of the world.
In the U.S., many states have re-opened for in-person learning, but some places have seen new outbreaks tied to K-12 schools or in local communities in Washington state, Wisconsin, and Georgia.
In California, thousands of students returned to in-person classes but many districts are still entirely virtual. Some advocates of students with disabilities say many are children are being punished with virtual learning due to behavioral issues or their disabilities.
According to surveys by the Biden administration in February, 52% of white fourth-graders are getting in person instruction full time, while less than 33% of Black and Hispanic fourth-graders were back at school full time, and 15% of Asian American students.
Schools in other nations have also re-opened including in France, Argentina, and rural schools in Uruguay that have at most 20 students and one teacher.
