We just wrote a hard email. I told our son’s (lovely, kind, caring) teacher that, no, we will not be participating in her “virtual classroom”, and that he was done with the 1st grade. We cannot cope with this insanity. Survival and protecting his well being come first.

This is my Kindergarteners home school curriculum. And nearly everything requires a printer, which we don’t have. We quit.

And teachers are NOT supposed to expect parents to follow a schedule like a school day. They were told that. FLEXIBILITY I just can’t deal with this myself and I’m a teacher. THROW THIS OUT!!

Please don’t blame this on the teacher. Some states and some local districts are ratcheting up the expectations as time in school closures have lengthened. It could be that they are required to do this by their admin. And yes, it is wrong. We have major equity issues!

While I understand frustration, you’re assuming all parents are in your situation. Some may not be working and want structure. Also as a teacher, most of that is video learning which does NOT require printing. GC allows docs online for kids to write on!

Welcome to the life of a teacher. BUT, we aren’t just teaching one kid, we have 30+ kids in each classroom. We can’t just let the kids “do whatever they want.”

I think I understand your frustration, but please don't blame the teachers. We are told by our districts to do what we do, and we've never done this before, so...in many cases it's too much. Make the choice for yourself and your family. That's more important.

I wonder if a lot of it was pressure put on teachers to get something out together as a roadmap for parents who want/need it. If they didn’t, their jobs would be perceived as irrelevant. Schools HOLDING kids/testing them on these new curricula would be the real tragedy

This is almost exactly what my 4yr old does, every school day & I have done with all my kids for 11 years now. This is what distance education looks like.

It’s different in this situation as that was a choice you made. Unfortunately (or fortunately for those with jobs) in the current scenario, we’re balancing our own continuing jobs and responsibilities, and adding half a day of schooling.
