(ReliableNews.org) – Next month, students across the US will start back to school. Whether or not they should physically attend classes has been a hot topic of debate. President Donald Trump believes all schools should reopen. Now, he’s getting support from one of the most trusted organizations in the country.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) wants kids back in schools. During a July 6 interview with Fox News, AAP President Dr. Sara Goza said being out of school long-term can impact their mental health, diet, emotional and social skills. The doctor said something similar earlier this month during an appearance on CNN.

Goza warned keeping kids out of their classrooms could lead to depression, anxiety and even “suicidal ideations.”
The president has said he is going to work closely with local governments to get schools safely reopened. Just like every other parent in America, he wants to ensure kids are getting everything they need to thrive and succeed.
