    • Hello Asnica,
      I completely agree. I have been having trouble with online schooling aswell. There are too many distractions everywhere and it is hard to focus. Here is a source that gives the pros and cons of online learning: https://www.campusexplorer.com/college-advice-tips/F0232E15/Pros-and-Cons-of-Online-School/. I enjoyed reading this good job!

    • Asnica I agree that online schooling has been difficult I do think it has some ups with us being able to have more flexibility but for the most part it has lot of downsides. The flexibility itself is a downside as you stated in that without the structure of traditional schooling it is up to the student to be disciplined enough to set deadlines and stick to a good schedule. I have found it increasingly difficult to stay motivated and stay on task especially when I am just a room or a few feet away from my bed. I too miss seeing my friends and teacher and I hope we can get back to normal life for the last few weeks of our high school career.

    • Hi Asnica,
      I really like your argument. I never thought I would miss going to school normally but I miss it now. Its good for your mental health to interact with others and have a sense of structure in what you have to do. I find it difficult to maintain motivation during this time, even more than I did when I was in school. One good thing about online schooling, however, is that it saves time. I can take care of whatever school work will take me the longest first, then get smaller things done. So far, this has left me with more time to rest or get exercise. I think that our school has a really got environment, and I wish we could experience it now because our last year ends soon. I found this article that shows the pros and cons of online high school that mentions how if your high school has a negative environment, online school is a good option: https://vittana.org/20-pros-and-cons-of-online-high-school. This does not really apply to our situation, and I miss seeing people at school every day, but its still an interesting perspective.

    • Asnica I agree with your article, online schooling is harder and more stressful. School was easy with the one on one interactions and it was fun seeing everyone.

    • There is so much more to education than simply opening a book and reading from it. The actual interaction between a student and a teacher, and between students themselves, represents a substantial part of the entire education experience. For sake of our mental health, the traditional school programming is proving to be much more important than on-line impersonal learning. As people are finding out during this time of independent quarantining, many more people are suffering from mental health problems associated with isolation. For generations, it has been known that people need personal interaction with others to maintain a good healthy mental attitude. That is all being taken away from us during on-line learning. Psychological experiments have constantly concluded that most people are much more likely to inflict pain on lab rats and supposedly even real people, if they are not in the same room as the potential victim or recipient of the pain. I believe this is proving to be consistent with on-line education efforts in that it appears many teachers are assigning a significant greater amount of homework than we would have if we were attending classes physically each day. It is great that we have technology to allow us to participate in Zoom meetings, but it does not assist us in engaging in the same type of worthwhile discussion as if we were sitting in the same classroom. In other words, I miss being in the classroom with my friends, teachers, and everyone else that make up the Judge Memorial community.

    Hi, Meghan
    I love this poem! while I was reading it, I was nodding my head because it’s so true. We really need to help the Earth so we can keep living on Earth.

    Wonderful job!

  • Hi Noa
    I completely agree with you. We need to have both sides trying to stop police brutality. ”assisting young men from low-income communities with finding jobs in the hopes that this will keep them off the streets and addressing mental health issues and utilizing mental health professionals to deal with psychiatric issues.” I really liked…Read More

    • Dear Asnica,
      I loved this article very much. In the first paragraph it quotes, “African American are more likely to get lower-paying jobs than white people because the education between white communities and black communities are a lot different from each other. Black males and females are less likely to become successful because they are less likely to attend and graduate from college”. I think that African Americans can achieve whatever they set their mind to, and that they do get profiled a lot, but that should not affect them because they should know they are hard workers and can do anything good in life!

  • hi nini
    yes, depression is a very very serious mental illness. We need to be able to talk about in weather its online or in schools or with family or friends we just need to talk about it more.
