While most people in Ireland – fortunately – have no personal experience of COVID 19, virtually every family in the country is affected by the shut-down of schools. Children are missing out on their education and social life, while parents struggle to combine home schooling with working from the bedroom. If they have to go to work – like nurses, gardai, and shop assistants – they can’t call on grandparents to help with baby sitting. In tonight’s programme, we discuss the stark reality of the schools shut-down with a teacher and student from a northside Dublin school and with Chris Brett, a health benefit analyst who’s campaigning for the re-opening of schools in England.
