Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that more and more schools are attempting online education during coronavirus shutdowns. Discuss here if you think most schools are prepared to educate students online, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

Even if the schools are ready, it's unlikely the students are. Far too difficult to even work from home with all the distractions; I'd suspect that level is even 10x for teens and children. Plus, a large portion of the country doesn't have the infrastructure to support "distance-learning"....

Day 4 of Homeschooling: 2 students suspended for fighting and 1 teacher fired for drinking on the job.

Day 5 of Homeschooling: One of these little monsters called in a bomb threat.

Day 6 of Homeschooling: My child just said "I hope I don't have the same teacher next year"... I'm offended.

From the company "yammer" discussions, it shows how problematic it gets to set up a home-office. Beside finding a "quiet" space with internet access, wireless is not always a reliable media if you have to connect over VPN to the company.

And many parents have discovered raising kids is far more difficult if you have to do it all by yourself, without the support of school teachers or daycare centers!

The fact that schools are coming forward to offer online classes is definitely to be welcomed and highly appreciable as well. Today's kids are already very tech savvy, with many already using different apps for their studies. So, I think that these online classes are an additional boon to them. Will they feel distracted studying from home? Yes, but we all know that situations are going to change and things will be back to normal, so it's only fair that we cut them some slack.
