A lot of kids still need hands on experience and the social aspects that come with being in a classroom. I think Remote Learning should be an option, but all the other options should be kept as well.

For reasons mentionned already.
And also because many children have parents who just don't care. Their children will end up without any education.
1 of my daughters (11yo) went back to school yesterday for the 1st time since March 18th. A boy in the class has done absolutely nothing all this time, except posting a "good morning" in the digital classroom at 2am one day.
Going to school not only gives education, but also structure for those who don't get this at home.
Also, this daughter of mine has to choose what school to go to next year. She was interested in a school that follows the Dalton method. In this method, there is less structure, students need to plan their own work and make the deadlines. This is pretty much how it went these last 2 months. She managed just fine, but didn't like it at all. Now she no longer wants Dalton method, she'll be going to a school with the standard method. Because she is more comfortable in a well structured environment.

But the experience of social learning in large groups with varying ages, activities, projects, sports, cliques, bullying, first love interests, break-ups..none of that works online. It's a critical competency that prepares kids for the future, the physical connections to 100+ other kids. And upwards of 50% of parents would either kill themselves or their kids after the first year at home. I know because I'm already close and it's only been 7 weeks.

Sure kids learn their ABC's and times tables and long division, etc. However the most important aspect has and always will be social interaction for the children. Classrooms are where they learn to speak with their peers, solve problems, develop a sense of empathy, etc. All skills just as important as the stuff taught in math or science class.
Anecdotally, for better or worse, the majority of people I've met who were homeschooled have been a bit socially off. If I ever have kids, I will 100% want them to be in a classroom with kids of the same age.
