No debate on the latter, but don't be so quick to call leisure dead because of school starting; with many school districts returning to online learning, one thing they heard loud and clear was that the kids needed a flexible online schedule so working parents could help the kids after work hours and on weekends. The end result is that most of the online curriculum out there allows kids to learn from anywhere, at anytime, as long as there's a reliable internet connection.
More than a few of my friends who are parents have perked up at this and started planning fall/winter trips knowing they can take the kids' Chromebooks wherever they go on vacation and get the work done on the trip. I know my wife and I are definitely eyeing some winter travel with our kiddos even though school will be in full swing; the Chromebook will just go with us.
Sorry but that is grasping at straws IMO, the last thing I’d want to do or my other friends with kids is go on vacation where the kids will then have to log onto classes. Maybe a local vacation yes .... but to fork over 1000s to sit in a hotel room or Airbnb and do classes and homework , probably not going to happen. This is one of those concepts that sound great on paper but in reality ....
