As a teacher I can confirm.
But that is just education in general. It is more apparent now given the circumstances.
@Sexy HomuncuIus, as another teacher, I confirm your confirmation.
@downvoterist, as another teacher, I confirm your confirmation of the confirmation
@Sexy HomuncuIus, But you know what? You're fvcking trying, so good on you
@SimonPetrikov, thank you! I appreciate that!
@TheMathemagician, as another teacher i confirm your confirmation of the confirmation about the confirmation
They kinda deserve it for assigning more and more online work. I was fortunate to have my own laptop, but God help the kids who weren't fortunate enough to even have a computer in the house.
@Invalid User, this is my biggest erk about straight online for everything. Some kids have a laptop from 2006 that still runs windows7, which doesn't always cooperate with online exams, which are usually open note so the kids with a computer desktop, laptop, and iPad are gonna be able to study and take these exams much easier
@Invalid User, my wife is a first grade teacher in an area with about 50% of the population poor. Long distance learning will be extremely difficult as many do not have devices to learn on. Now the admin wants the teachers to come up with a plan. Basically pawning off their work to the teachers. The teachers weren’t even given guidelines like total time, will we have ebooks, will i get a laptop, can we send them worksheets. Then you have the rich kids with decked out ipads and work stations pressuring the school to teach already. Load of bs if you ask me.
@Implicit88, I went from public to charter two years ago. I worked 15 hour days for a week straight making sure all of the students in my grade team had internet, had access to some working technology, and could access google classroom. I was having night terrors and panic attacks. Within two weeks, we had food, internet and technology to every single student. We don’t have a $$$ scoreboard, but every single one of our kids has access to distance learning now. I’m Title I teacher, working in the area I grew up in. We aren’t the poorest, but we are far from average income. I hope it gets easier for your wife- I feel her pain right now. If I was in my previous district I would’ve been in her shoes. The district has the money and the resources, it’s how they choose to spend it. Like overpriced superintendents and lawsuits 🙄
@SchroedingerPussPuss, yeah there are many local business with people easily in the top 1% (ranches plus a big plant). I told her if i was her i would push back vs admin or at the very lease create a flow chart of how the decisions that need to be made (in order) and who needs to make them.
“There’s got to be a better way!!”
I'm a first year teacher (literally on an intern certification) and I just wish my school would choose one damn plan and STAY ON IT. Every week it changes and messes with the kids and parents. I work at a Title 1, thank God we got brand new Chromebooks for all of our students and the district purchased hotspots for everyone or we'd be even more screwed than we already are...
Well, our educational system has been in the shjtter since some moron proposed "No Child Left Behind", aka "Nobody fails, everybody passes, everybody gets a prize!"
@Suicide Squad Sucks, I don’t agree entirely. It’s not what you’re saying but how you’re saying it
Parents who where already homeschooling their kids: X'D X'D
Looks more like this administration trying to deal with a pandemic
Remote? I thought this was just common core.
Sweet. The car is clean.
