And I don’t mean that as an insult. There is simply no precedent for how to plan for educating students in the midst of a global pandemic. The last time anything even close to this scale was over 100 years ago, which might as well have been 1,000 years ago in terms of what we have as far as technology, ability to communicate, medical treatments and the ability to conduct different kinds of teaching and learning. The main reason there is no concrete plan right now is because the information that we are getting is changing every day and what seems like a good plan yesterday might look like a recipe for disaster tomorrow..
