The first day of school is here and it seems as if NO ONE is ready, I’m mainly talking about the parents. I know for a fact that I am NOT prepared for the in home schooling that my kids will be a part of. My 2 middle school children will have the most difficult time because they have to log in to one class then log out of that same class just to log back in to their next class. I know these children are getting older but that’s still a lot for a 6th and 8th grader to do.
I think the biggest challenge all of these schools will be facing is trying to keep the kids attention while they are at home for 8+ hours and to sit in front of a computer. As a parent being at home with that child it will be our job to keep them focused but for those parents who also work from home that will be a difficult task as well.
Even though no one expected this school year to be the way it is, I feel that all the decisions that were made about schooling were rushed and not thought all the way through.
How do you feel about the changes that were made to the school year?
