LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. (WKBW) — A new poll from Siena College found that the majority of New Yorkers say that completely reopening schools is too risky.
According to the Siena College Research Institute, even though not reopening will be tough on kids, parents in New York state would rather not risk the spreading coronavirus.
Meanwhile, two-thirds of New Yorkers say colleges should only offer remote education and not bring students back to campus for the fall semester.
“As schools across New York grapple with whether to or how to open in the fall, by nearly two to one, New Yorkers say completely opening schools runs too great a risk,” according to SCRI Director, Don Levy. “Despite recognizing how hard not opening is on kids and their families, only a third say that the negative effect on students is too great and that we have to bring the children back to school.”
