Why are recommendations different for young children versus older children?

The differences in the recommended learning modes for elementary and middle/high school students are based on existing evidence that shows older students can transmit COVID-19 like adults. Younger children are less able to learn online and have social and language development needs that should be addressed in person. Elementary schools are also better designed to cohort students to prevent transmission.
