, and two schools in Alabama, which were scheduled to start on 12, have changed plans to provide online teaching for students.

Several state school districts in New Jersey have said they will not restart their campuses this year and will only teach online, and teachers in several schools have expressed strong opposition to face-to-face teaching. “It’s futile to keep trying to do the impossible. So over the next five weeks, schools will spend as much time as possible to make distance learning possible, “said a school district official. In the last two weeks of July, at least 97078 American children tested positive for new crowns, an increase of 40% over previous weeks, according to NBC on the 11th.
