Why are kids these days so lucky they don't have to go to school because of some little flu?

When I was a kid I had to wake up early and go to school. Know these damn kids get to stay home and learn on the computer it's not fair.

    Hahaha tell the high school seniors and college freshman how "lucky" they are to not have their final year of highschool, not to have a traditional college experience.  Tell the kids who are abused or who's parents both need to work how "lucky" they are. Lol

    Not all kids are so lucky that they don't have to go to school because of covid-19.

    At this point, if I still wasn't scared of the coronavirus, enough concern over coronavirus would have me scared. Besides, does the flu usually kill over 100,000 Americans alone within 6 months? No, but coronavirus has

    Corona virus is NOT THE FLU. It's a serious, deadly disease that has already killed over 160,000 people in the US alone, and many hundreds of thousands more worldwide. And while children are less affected by it, they are NOT IMMUNE TO IT. The big danger with them spreading it around to each other and to their teachers at school is that the kids will drag the disease home with them and infect their parents and elderly grandparents,who easily could end up dying from the virus. That scenario has already started to play out in states like Florida and Georgia, where schools and other places (like bars) reopened too soon. And people are dying right and left as a result. It's a recipe for naked horror, all right. MOST Virgin Field Pandemics generally are. That's what this pandemic is, you know. VFP's happen when a disease like this one hits a population that has no known prior exposure, and thus has little or no resistance. In such cases, mortality and fatality rates are often extremely high, with the most vulnerable people dying first. We have seen this happen countless times throughout recorded history. The Black Death of the Middle Ages was a VFP. So was the Ebola outbreak in 2014, which killed over 12,000 people in Africa and assorted other places worldwide before it was finally brought under control. I'm sure you have read or heard about the smallpox outbreaks that were common in Europe for centuries before America was even discovered. Those were VFP's, too.

    Bunch of Wimps During WW2 in London we were forced to go to school

    The bombing of Sandhurst Road School occurred during an air raid on Wednesday, 20 January 1943 when the school on Minard Road, Catford, south east London was seriously damaged. A German fighter-bomber dropped a single 500-kilogram (1,100 lb) bomb on the school at 12:30 pm, killing 38 children (32 killed at the school and 6 more died in hospital) and 6 staff and injuring another 60 people. Many were buried for hours under the rubble.The attackThe German attack was part of a raid by 28 Focke-Wulf ( owned by ITT USA)

    Fw 190A-4U3 fighter-bombers escorted by Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighters, which took off at noon from an airfield in German-occupied France. The planes were to attack any targets of opportunity in what the Germans called a Terrorangriff ("terror raid"). The German pilot who attacked the school was Hauptmann Heinz Schumann (born 29 November 1914, killed in action 8 November 1943) from Jagdgeschwader 2. He was flying a Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-4 carrying a single 500 kg SC500 bomb. It is debated whether Schumann deliberately targeted the school, or simply attacked what looked like a large factory (the school was several stories high). The report mentions that a large building was targeted and destroyed in the raid and noted as a block of flats.Goss also says that the RAF had bombed Berlin three days before this terror-raid which was a retaliation raid demanded by Hitler.[citation needed]Due to inefficiencies of the warning system, the air raid siren had not sounded by the time the German planes arrived. Many children were having their lunch and the attack destroyed the area of the school where they were eating.

    Witness reports suggest the attacking planes first flew past the school and then bombed it on a second run. Another plane is alleged to have also strafed the playground and local streets. In the same raid four barrage balloon sites were destroyed in Lewisham, a large gas holder in Sydenham was set alight, a Deptford power station suffered three direct hits, and the President's House at the Royal Naval College, Greenwich.Deaths and memorialsMemorials to the victims of the Second World War and of the bombing of Sandhurst Road School, Catford.The bomb killed (either immediately or later in hospital) 24 pupils and 2 teachers in the dining room. Five more children were killed on a staircase and nine in second floor classrooms. The blast also destroyed the staff room killing three teachers and another was killed in a science room. Roughly 60 others were injured. The teachers who died were: Mrs Connie Taylor, Mrs Ethel Betts, Mrs Virginia Carr, Miss Mary Jukes, Miss Gladys Knowelden and Miss Harriet Langdon.Of the 38 children and 6 teachers killed by the bombing, 31 children and 1 teacher were buried together at Hither Green Cemetery in a civilian war dead plot.

    and we were back in class the next day

    I stand in awe sometimes at the effort some people are prepared to put into ignoring facts. Why don't you go to any hospital and walk around the ICU, then come back here and apologise for being an ignorant dick.

    Fingers crossed you get 'the flu' and are unable to pass on your genes. Evolution at it's best.

    They sure are. If this happened while I was in school I'd be so happy. Especially in April when you still have 4 horrible months of school left. I wasnt one of those lucky people that peaked in high school, I was a lonely loser who'd go to the library every lunchtime or hide in the toilets.

    Your acting like a kid yourself. If your a parent, you wouldn’t want your kid to come down with the virus that’s killed a lot of people in the past few months. Also, online learning sin’t as easy as you think.

    Well, it's not just a flu, it's a pandemic. And given the technological changes, children are actually studying no matter where they are. Online education has grown leaps and bounds. But yes, if this had happened say 10 years ago, then your question would've been true. I stay in Singapore and my son studies from this place called LurningHub and he's been doing great!
