Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any way to edit the title. Oh, well.
I DON'T see the point of quarantining the healthy unvaccinated kids. The school is NOT liable for anyone catching a disease from sitting next to an infected--or uninfected--child. In fact, our school refused to send a note home to parents telling them that chicken pox was going around the school, which I thought was a terrible decision--imagine if a parent undergoing chemo came into the school for some reason. And before our pro-vax friends even think that that makes a case to keep the unvaccinated home, EVERY SINGLE CHILD WHO CAME DOWN WITH CHICKEN POX IN OUR SCHOOL WAS VACCINATED FOR IT.
We have to remember several things:
Vaccination does not prevent one from transmitting the disease, whether or not one gets symptoms.
The same germs that they mistakenly believe are kept from their school are at the grocery store, libraries, restaurants, Starbucks,sports stadiums, health clubs, swimming pools, movie theaters, concert halls, airports, buses, subways, trains, public rest rooms, and the waiting rooms for every single doctor and every single extra-curricular activity you can think of.
So you can't go to school and sit next to anyone there, but you can meet them for dinner and a movie.
