Arkansas Schools Should Void 4th Quarter Grading and Pass Remainder of 2019/2020 Classes

The Arkansas Public Education System has crumbled in the recent COVID-19 Pandemic. The schools have started "distance learning" which is new to students and teachers. The schools are forcing teachers to put out more work than the normal workload during this online period, for no actual cause. There is no need for this extra workload when all EOC's have been cancelled. The workload along with the  stress and anxiety placed on students and teachers does not create a healthy environment for learning to take place. Without the ability to be in direct contact with a teacher, students are not as willing to work and find it harder to grasp the concepts.  I have started this petition in hopes of getting our GPA for the 4th quarter voided and receiving our credits in full for this 2nd semester. Students should not be penalized for a global issue that is now fully out of control. Again it is very hard to learn at home, when you are usually relaxing and trying to not think about school.
