As I wrote earlier, I think that most students will be fine even though they have missed the past two months of school (see I am not convinced that student learning losses this year are traumatic, but they will be bad, if we’re online next year).
But our most vulnerable students are the ones you met and the least able to afford.
I know that our district offers some courses for students with special needs and an online credit recovery program that I think is great for students so that they don’t lag behind but have questionable learning value. However, it does not offer anything for English learners and other students who face challenges taught online by a “living” teacher.
And as a new article from Ed Week District summer school schedules on shaky ground shows they are certainly not alone.
District found the money to buy Chromebooks for everyone. Can’t find the money to offer additional classes? I’m not a financial analyst, but will it really make matters worse to offer a few more courses?
