This year, school is more uncertain for our families due to COVID-19. For many, this means choosing between in-person classes or online learning. What are your thoughts regarding virtual vs. classroom learning? ... See MoreSee Less
First, I think we should all acknowledge that it's a tough situation and education is not a one size fit all structure anyway so to make public health policies that work for everyone in an educational setting is very difficult. I think digital education can and does work for many, especially older elementary, middle and high school. However, special needs children and our younger elementary kids need in person education. Again, there's no one solution for everyone, but I wish people in general would be more kind in considering that many parents work full time (a lot of them health workers on the front line) and cannot be home to supervise digital learning. With that said, any teacher that is high risk should not have to be made to teach in person and risk her/his health for their job. This is hard for everyone and understanding that the answer for each child/family may look different is the first step in solving this crisis together.
