I just spoke with someone familiar with a certain prestigious East coast school's plan moving forward. They were leaning towards online only, not announced yet, then got word that students were now planning "gap years", instead of participating. I can't imagine families not wanting to pay $70,000/year, to stay home and learn online. The school is now trying to figure out a middle ground.Some schools will decide not to hold in person classes and students will be stuck on home doing online "learning."
Other schools will proceed to hold in person classes, with masks, social distancing and other safety precautions in place.
I would bet a large sum of money that by the end of the semester the infection rates of those kids who stayed home and those who returned will not be materially different.
