As parents think about the start of the school year, many parents are worried that the pandemic will interfere with their kids’ education, making it difficult or impossible to send them back to school.

What does it look like for children returning to school amid the Covid-19 pandemic?

In other parts of the world, stay-at-home orders have been lifted with restrictions and strict social distancing guidelines. In some countries children have been attending school for weeks, while others are just starting to figure out the new protocols for keeping students and faculty safe.

This week, France has begun reopening schools in some areas for preschool and elementary-aged children.

Meanwhile, in parts of China schools have been open for the past couple of weeks and students seem a bit more adapted to the new implementations of sanitation protocols and the need to wear protective face coverings.

WATCH: Should children return to school amid COVID-19?

While lawmakers debate when and how to reopen schools, it’s clear that all are united in the belief that in-person schooling is critical to childhood development. Dr. Leana Wen, an emergency physician and public health professor at George Washington University, confirmed the tangible benefits to in-person schooling, from ease of education to food security. But, she also reiterated the importance of getting the virus under control in order to get children back to school safely. You can't keep COVID out of the school if the community is a hotbed of infection and that's the single most important thing we can do now in order to get our schools to safely reopen in the fall, Wen said.

Wen joined PBS NewsHour’s William Brangham to answer viewer questions on July 14 to discuss what this school year could look like.
