Queenslanders vote for back to school
MOST Queenslanders think schoolkids should be back at school, according to a Courier-Mail online poll.
As of midday on Friday, more than 17,000 people had voted in the poll, with 72 per cent indicating Queensland schoolkids should not be staying home.
Twenty-four per cent of voters indicated that kids staying home was the right move, while a further 4 per cent were unsure what the right move was.
At present, Queensland schools are open only to vulnerable students and those whose parents are essential workers who cannot work from home. All other students learn remotely from home.
Federal Education Minister Dan Tehan has set a June 1 deadline for all schools to reopen.
