Dear Commons Community,
The Chronicle of Higher Education has been keeping track of the reopening plans of colleges and universities for Fall 2020. Up until this past Monday, the majority of the plans indicated that the students would be taking classes primarily in-person. That has changed and as of Monday (July 27th), most of the colleges will now reopen with remote learning or some form of blended/hybrid courses. Above are pie charts showing how the percentage of plans shifted from May 8th to July 27th.
This makes good safe sense. As I have said in earlier posts on this topic, colleges that re-open in person are only one keg-party from a health disaster.
