Universities Are Blaming Students For The Spread Of The Coronavirus, Says One Missouri Professor
College administrators have some tough decisions to make, but it's a mistake for them to blame outbreaks of COVID-19 solely on students, says Dr. Jessica Gold.
One Missouri professor who wrote about the issue for The Atlantic says students are inevitably going to socialize, and the playbook colleges use to govern campuses needs to incorporate that. Instead, says Dr. Jessica Gold, they should seek to answer another question: “How can we think of socializing safely and be on the same side?”
