• Dear Kheriya,

    I am moved by your post regarding drug abuse and gun violence because unfortunately due to these issues we are losing thousands of people including innocent victims. When it comes to drug or substance abuse many people fall into a deep whole which seems impossible to come out of this sometimes leads to them losing their families.…[Read more]

    • Hi, I completely agree with your argument. I believe that it is hard to manage your time at home when you are not used to it and on top of that have much more assignments to complete. I also feel as though staying at home being isolated makes it hard to learn, because you do not have your classmates and teachers to help. That being said there is also very little social interactions, which is hard to live without frequently talking to people face to face. I found an article that talks about how kids gain social skills while doing online school.

      How Students Interact and Gain Social Skills in Online Classrooms

    • Hi, I agree with you.
      Online schooling might get teachers in confusion at the very beginning. It make us to learn at home during pandemic become possible. But it also has it’s short coming. The student at home need to have a very high self-motivation. But most people don’t have it. So online schooling still can’t replace the tradition one.

    • Hi,

      I agree with your ideas and also think that they both have some advantages and disadvantages.Nevertheless,personally I prefer going to school and being more social. On the other hand, I think online education is the best choice to do in these cases where we are not able to go to school.

    • Hey April,
      I really understand your feeling quite well, since I am strugglig the same way. I did a post on if online schooling is good or bad and I pretty much had the same stance you have right now. One of the articles I used was (https://homeschoolbase.com/pros-and-cons-online-high-school/) I think it might interest you since it does speak about certain facts that I at least didn’t think about all that much.
      Sincerely, Paula

    • Hey April,
      I totally agree, school has been pretty hard this quarter. I can barely get myself to do work and I’m glad that I’m not the only one who feels this way. School is a lot better when you have all the fun social stuff that comes with it too instead of just learning. I kind of lost all my motivation, so yes. Online school is the solution for now but sometime we’ll have to resume back to normal.

    • Hi April, during this pandemic, so many things have changed. And school has been one of the biggest changes that have occurred. School is completely different and many people agree that it is harder than actual school. Everyone was confused at first and no one knew what to do including the teachers. Home- based school settings are not for everyone like you said. It is something hard to get used to when you have gone to real school for the past 12-13 years of your life.

    I am intrigued by your post because I totally agree with you. I also feel that we should all be allowed to express our own opinion without people contradicting what we say or what we do.

    I am very satisfied with your post because I also believe women should take a stand against domestic violence. Also, that no women should be mistreated.
