I’ve got parents who’ve asked me to stop sending reminds out so early in the morning (8 am).


My wife (no pics) is a teacher. She says the same thing in regular circumstances.

That might be the biggest reason I'm not a teacher. I could not handle that. Americans, as a society, are idiotic, selfish, entitled idiots.

I bet I've done a better job at teaching my step daughter the last 2 weeks than the school did. She's doing homework that I assign and she does a Skype with a tutor for 4 hrs a week.



Was she doing the homework her teachers assigned and getting Skype lessons from a tutor 4 hours a week prior to the shut down?

Naw man. I was told autodidactic education was the way of the future and that holograms would replace all the lazy teachers.



Wait....if the teachers are holograms, how are they supposed to bang the students?

It’s more of a babysitting service, IMO.

NLCB/testing was a reasonable idea that has gone horribly, horribly wrong.

High school math teacher here...

First major online assignment had 118 out of 132 turn it in. Out of the 14 that did not turn it in, I would say 10 of them did not do work before this virus stuff started.

Next assignment is due tomorrow night. They will have had 6 days to complete it. We shall see how this assignment goes for completion.

I have around 125 students. 15-20 have completed any assignments at all. Honestly, it’s about what I expected.

Is your district grading online assignments? They’re completely optional for the students in my district.

Too many parents consider school a free baby sitting service for their offspring.

re: America(ns) need schools
Students will be given full credit for any homework assignment that is turned in by the due date. I’m giving them at least 2-3 days per assignment. If they turn in the assignment late, I’ll still give them credit, just not full credit, maybe like 80%.

As for tests, I’m fully expecting every student to get a 100% because there is no way to prevent cheating. They will be using their notes, examples from live sessions, internet, friends, and photo math apps on their phone to compete the tests. We are setting the time limit at 75 minutes and setting it so they can not pause the test at all. Once they start it, they must finish it in that setting.

A major issue for me is if a student has 0 or 1 quality point through the first 3 nine weeks, but gets an A in this bull shite 4th nine weeks, technically they would have enough quality points to pass the course. I hope this is not allowed because this online learning is crap and they will all be cheating. I’m not sure wha the district is going to do, but I’m hearing rumors that the online work will not be counted toward their progression to passing the course, which I agree with.

Nothing wrong with the testing itself, but funding should have never been tied to the passing rates for tests or failure rates. That's what has caused the vast majority of the issues in education, with parents that don't care the most of the rest of the issue.

Students are rarely the issue, it's what they are enabled/allowed to do that are the problem.
