Online Classes May Be Here To Stay

BARTLETT, ILLINOIS - MAY 01: Seven-year-old Hamza Haqqani, a 2nd grade student at Al-Huda Academy, uses a computer to participate in an E-learning class with his teacher and classmates while at his home on May 01, 2020 in Bartlett, Illinois. Al-Huda Academy, an Islam based private school that teaches pre-school through the 6th grade students, has had to adopt an E-learning program to finish the school year after all schools in the state were forced to cancel classes in an attempt to curtail the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you and your kids hated online learning — sorry — it’s likely not going anywhere.

In a new USA TODAY article, some parents complained that e-learning made kids feel isolated, they couldn’t keep up with it, and there was no uniform way of doing things between teachers.

But, many district reopening plans in the fall are going to be a mix of classroom instruction and e-learning so schools can comply with required coronavirus safety guidelines.

A new Gallop poll found parents are basically split on sending their kids back to the classroom; 56% said they want their kids to attend schools full time this fall.

If your district reopens, will you send your kids back to school? How will you handle it if online learning is still part of the plan?
