Our children are being short-changed. They are not getting the education that our taxes or tuition has paid for. Yet, parents are whining that the kids have too much work.
Last week was spring break, and one teacher had the audacity to assign a couple videos for the kids to watch and comment on (WWII and Nazi Germany). Some parents were apoplectic that the kids had “homework” during spring break.
Today was a scheduled “half day” for Good Friday, and some parents were upset that the kids actually had to logon and complete some work.
I’m absolutely befuddled by the attitude.

In a normal situation, yes. But, this is not normal. Everyone is acting like this is normal.
These kids are being short-changed. A disservice is being done to them. My kids have been home since March 7th, and will be home through, at least May 4th.
You can’t tell me that they will have received a quality, or even marginal education.
The teachers are posting ‘optional work” that they can do. There is no optional work in my house. Anything assigned, gets done.
There is no xbox nor movies nor tablet games during a school day. We’re treating any online day, as though it was a normal school day. My only real concession, is that they’re allowed to watch TV, after the work is done, and after 1500.
