re: America(ns) need schools
I’m a teacher in Destin and we start online classes next week and expect the same amount of engagement from my students. How are you going to handle the ones who don’t do anything? Give a “C” and just make it till the end in May? I emailed 38 parents and heard back from 1 the other day

It's not just the students who are being lazy during this crisis. No offense, but I haven't noticed too many teachers being fully engaged. Many seemed to have adopted a "homework mentality" (i.e., I'm going to assign this work to students, and my only job is to field any questions that they may ask me).

We planned weeks of “normal” daily lessons with video, etc in two eight hour days just to be told after two days of “distance learning” that it was “too much” for parents to handle. Scale it down to 20-30 minute lessons due every other day. Also can’t put Fs for kids not doing anything or choosing which subjects they want to do.

That would be a quick way for me to start sending it out at 6:30.

No. Just replying to why the online classes seem like “homework”. It didn’t start that way.

Hey good on ya for being a virtual teacher. My daughter's school isn't even doing that. they just send out random emails with assignments spread across the emails. Ive been doing all the teaching. I have never appreciated teachers more than I do now.

Yup. Missing an entire semester of school is going to absolutely destroy a ton of this generation’s kids.

No one seems to give a shite because we have to keep constantly focused on mass hysteria.

I asked them to listen to a podcast about the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments. It’s 53 minutes long. I prepared some discussion questions.

I hosted a virtual classroom at 10 and three kids logged in.
