Not the most important

I don’t think returning children to school is the most important think to ease the lockdown. Worse case senario Keep schools closed till vaccine available and children repeat a year. School attendance should not be seen as childcare.

Why the contribution is important

Would allow economic recovery opening business

    Think you are missing the point in that for many they would be unable to return to work without their children being able to physically attend school or nursery. With a vaccine being at best a year away, if possible at all, this would result in a substantial proportion of parents being forced into unemployment to account for children not being in education settings and therefore parents having to provide childcare. This would be disastrous for the Scottish economy and would push a high number of households into poverty
