Report: Remote Learning is FAILING with No End in Sight

If you are or know a parent of a school-aged child who has been forced into remote learning, you probably realize just how very little education is actually taking place these days.

With the start of 2021, children in the US have had their regular schooling interrupted since March of last year. Many students haven’t set foot inside a classroom in months. It is all getting to be a little too much for the kids as well as their families.

Back in June of last year, the New York Times ran an article with the headline, ‘It Was Just Too Much’: How Remote Learning Is Breaking Parents that describes parent after parent in New York City reaching their breaking point, even to the extent of tears. Since the article was published, NYC has been a patchwork of policies dictating when public schools can open and who may or may not attend in-person classes.

It is not just the scheduling conflicts and childcare confusion that the constant reshuffling of closures that angers parents; it is the low level of quality instruction and teacher engagement. In a poll conducted at the start of the current school year by EdSource, 75 percent of respondents felt that remote learning was worse than in-person instruction, and over a quarter stated that remote learning was “not at all effective.” Twenty-four percent of parents are so frustrated with the situation that they said they were planning on withdrawing their children from public schools and enrolling them in private or charter schools instead.

It is not only parents who have issues with remote learning; teachers are also frustrated. According to Chalkbeat, Ana Barros, a sixth-grade social studies teacher at a Tulsa, Oklahoma charter school, more than a quarter of her 86 students were failing. Barros’ students are not alone. Across the country, more students than ever are failing, and instead of addressing the problems of existing in remote learning, many districts are modifying their grading system to prevent students from failing classes or providing extra projects to help bring up their grades.

But how much longer can public schools continue to shortchange students when it comes to getting a good education? It is evident that the best solution is to get everyone back into the classroom. Yet, even when schools reopen, many teachers are not showing up. The Chicago Public School system planned to begin reopening schools for in-person teaching, but perhaps, not surprisingly, the Chicago Teachers Union criticized the reopening plan. About 40 percent of teachers and staff failed to report to in-person instruction after the Christmas break.

It is difficult to believe that we will see a significant increase in the number of public schools returning to regular instruction soon. Despite Trump-led Operation Warp Speed being successful with proven COVID-19 vaccines from several companies, an increase in coronavirus cases and increasing Democratic influence probably means that families will have months of remote learning in their future to struggle through together.

  1. I’ll just add on here that I think Covid 19 is a huge scam. I look into what people are actually finding in hospitals, and most of them are empty!

    1. The -19 virus is a very obvious germ warfare created by commie china & dems to dictate tyranny power in a NWO ! The treasonous crimes by bo in his 8 years of 78 U.S. Law violations also supported the china lab with U.S. tax $$’s then created low life antifa, blm, Islamic gang thugs to internally destroy U.S. Constitutional Freedom & Rights that dems supported his whims & ways to be dictator over the U.S.A. in a NWO with other dictators ! Obvious Treason ! Learning is now dictated democrat, socialistic, commie indoctrination to enslavement unless kids kiss a– with bo !

      1. Ward, thanks for your comment, it’s well taken. And It’s good to see that some one else’s eyes are opened and not wearing blinders that are worn by so many.

    2. Yes, I believe it’s a complete scam too and so do most of my family and friends. We’ve lived with viruses for aeons and aeons and survived perfectly. People die from the flue every year. People pass on from so many other diseases every year. We are survivors and the vast majority of people survive viruses, especially like this virus. The numbers are grossly ramped up and so are the deaths. The so-called experts claim to be working on a medication to counteract it when they should be focusing on encouraging people to work on making their immune system healthier. My daughter is an RN and they are closing their covid-19 floors. It’s run its course and it’s been part of the take down of America by the communist Democrat Party, who’re are part of the globals who want world tyrannical domination.

  2. Democrats destroying America. They manipulated the chinese virus to scare Americans into submission and they succeeded beyond sanity. The first tactic was to lockdown for 2 weeks to ‘flatten the curve’ and not exceed hospital capability. THAT FAILED. So, they upped the infections rates by manipulating the criteria. Cough or sneeze and it is chinese virus. It is always viewed as insanity to do the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome. Well, they are getting the outcome they planned to get. They have DESTROYED, BANKRUPTED, AND DRIVEN OUT OF BUSINESS 1/3 PLUS OF SMALL BUSINESSES, PUT MILLIONS ON UNEMPLOYMENT, AND DESTROYED STATE AND FEDERAL ECONOMIES. And now schools are destroyed, learning is destroyed for all public school kids. Teachers and staff still get full pay for doing half day of talking to a camera rather than real teaching.
    What will it take to wake up Our Dumbed Down People?
    We now have allowed/enabled a FRAUDULENT ELECTION TO TAKE OVER OUR COUNTRY.
    DEMOCRATS HAVE SUCCEEDED IN MAKING THE USA A COMMUNIST STATE.

    1. You are right in every word. Moreover, what the democrats did they split the country and they have no respect to more than 88 million Americans who president Trump supporters. They are scared to death from Trump coming back again to the white house. Every body knows now that the present regime in Iran is spreading evil all over the world: smuggling weapon, dealing with drugs (huge amounts like billions of dollars), human organs trafficking, money laundering, crimes all over the world. This regime is the responsibility of the Democrats. The Muslim Brotherhood had been banned ever sine its establishment almost 90 years ago, The democrats empowered them and put them in power in Egypt (president Morsi who died in jail) and that was under the veil of “democratically elected government. Obama and Hilary had more that ten advisors who were Muslim brotherhood. It is the democrats who destroyed American cities and caused the death of tens of people. We cannot forget what happened in NYC, Washington Dc, Detroit, LA, Atlanta, Portland, Minneapolis, Chicago…etc and now they talk about destruction in Capitol????? The people who did the damage in Capital are paid by the democrats. They are insurgents who infiltrated the demonstration. From day one when president trump was elected in 2016, the democrats and their fake media did not let an hour go by without criticism. And now they are talking about reconciliation and healing the wounds. After what???? We have complete darkness for the next four years. May God help America

  3. Big Guy!
    Covid 19 is a total Scam, I’m 83.5 years old, I got a flu shot every year, since turning 70.
    I go where ever i want to go, and haven’t had a sniffle. So, why is all these people getting
    sick, not all are sick from the Covid 19.

  4. I’ve had serious doubts about COVID since March. 2020. What’s compounded my doubts is the fact that after almost one year of masking up and shutting everything down, we haven’t made any progress. That’s the definition of insanity; doing the same thing the same way over and over again and expecting a different result. So..the Government is either doing something wrong to curtail the spread or better yet, the entire issue is a farce in order to achieve power over the people. I’m going with the latter. Now the people who are “in the know” say that it won’t be until later on in 2021 when we achieve herd immunity from the vaccine. Herd immunity? Where have I heard that before. Last year, herd immunity was a nasty expression and wouldn’t work. Oh, but now it does. Maybe if we went with herd immunity from the get go, we’d be way past this.
