Judy Aron at Consent of the Governed looks at proposed legislation for public school students in the event of a public crisis. Her readers comment.
Neither rain or snow or pandemic, no matter what emergency arises you must still “do school” as the administrators demand it to be done. Seems to me they don’t want parents to make their own educational choices in a crisis, but instead will promote doing government school at home, or some other remote location. I think logging into some remote site in order for junior to complete worksheets and “word-finds” might be somewhat low on people’s “to do” list when they are fighting for survival. Also, do they honestly think people will have electricity to get their lessons on the Internet or cable TV?
