Soon, my son’s 3-week winter break will end, and he will return to school. Kind of.
He will begin the second semester of seventh grade virtually.
Distance learning from home.
Seated at a desk in his bedroom. Except when he’s up and exercising for his physical education class.
As hard as he’s trying, and as hard as his teachers are trying, there is just no substitute for in-person instruction.
There is so much that goes on in a classroom that gets lost when a lesson is transmitted through a screen.
