There’s a pervasive myth that children are these pure, blank slates who cannot develop racial prejudices unless they are explicitly taught to do so. They’re color-blind, many will say, and we shouldn’t talk to them about race because they’re too young, too confused, and too innocent. If a young child does talk about race or expresses any form of bias, many adults quickly change the subject. They’ll dismiss it or cast blame, either with a “you don’t know what you’re talking about” or a “we don’t say things like that.”

What Will School Look Like in September?

Three months of lockdown has taught us this much: For the kids to be all right, they need to be With. Other. Kids. “The social-emotional needs of children to connect with other children in real time and space, whether it’s for physical activity, unstructured play or structured play, this is immensely important for young children in particular,” Dr. Dimitri Christakis, MD, MPH, Director of the Center for Child Health, Behavior and Development at Seattle Children’s Hospital told NPR.

So, what is the best we can hope for in September? The CDC recently released guidelines for reopening K-12 schools, but notes these are “recommendations” to be followed “as feasible.”
