In this article, it talks about how the level of education has taken a toll on the mental and learning ability of kids. In grades Kindergarten through – twelfth grade. The teachers noticed they were giving more Fs. Some fixes included were things like switching to a pass fail, which made it so students either helped themselves or barley passed. Another solution some schools tried was getting them all internet access and ways to access that internet, the issue with this is that it costs a lot of money and is very dependent on the kids showing up to online. But most of the Fs were kids not coming, or not engaging. Throughout the article it gives more solutions or issues teachers were having with getting their students to pass classes.

    Elizabeth,
    I think this is a very interesting and important topic, and liked the variety of issues you presented within the bigger issue, which is really that Covid has made learning very difficult for many kids over the past year. I think this issue has a strong tie to the fact that this past year has largely been characterized by the constant need for self-motivated action, and how isolation and working remotely oppose it. An article from The New York Times, “What We’re Learning About Online Learning,” discusses many problems similar to those in your analysis, and also offers a variety of solutions. One solution in particular that I think relates to the issue you described of kids not showing up online or engaging, is the process of mobilizing facilitators, coaches, and other staff members to support those in this situation. Though this may not be a possibility for every school, I think the simple act of support, in any form, is a possibility.
    As students continue learning online all around the world, I look forward to reading more of your insight into the issue and possible solutions.
