US School boards are doing a MUCH better job.

Look at the good work in Seattle:

They are addressing any computer or internet access issues and working woth local businesses with wifi etc etc.

From Ontario school boards: NOTHING!! If schools are closed for 3 weeks will they do anything or just throw up their hands and say “elearning is not for everyone”?? Are they afraid students will like it too much??

PS:

BTW, TVO offers great elearning courses: https://ilc.tvo.org/en-ca/ilc-courses

as do school boards:

But teachers continue to strike because it is proposed that elearning be opt-out!! Teachers insult parents by believing they won’t come in to the school once in 4 yrs for a quick opt-out mtg. It is really about job protection!!

 

PPS: Multiple learning styles is totally debunked! No evidence – an “edu fad”
