“A year ago we would have preferred to go back to school in the presence, but we stayed at home for the common good”, explains Martina Toma to the editorial staff of Ilfattoquotidiano.it. As far as transport is concerned, he explains that “there are a large number of secondary school students commuters, and use public transport to reach the offices “. An important issue, given that due to the increase in infections, local and railway transport companies intend to cut trains and rides due to lack of employees. What is frightening is also the risk of “bringing Covid home”, continues Martina Toma, because it means “putting the most fragile subjects at risk, and jeopardizing the work of parents”. “Let’s go back to school with worry e disappointment: concern for ourselves and disappointment for not having been listened to. Even the doctors are suggesting to close the schools because it will be a carnage: if they don’t listen to the doctors, they don’t listen to the principals, they don’t listen to us, on what basis are decisions made?“. “We have not been listened to – he concludes – not even in a situation of such great importance, but we have no intention of stay silent“.
