retard dumbass started this petition to Capistrano Unified School District

During the begging of the school year, Covid-19 caused CUSD and many other districts to switch to a fully online education program. We support this decision as many deemed it vital to stay at home. While staying at home kept us safe from the virus spreading around, it did not keep us safe from all of the downsides of homeschooling. Many didn’t own laptops or didn’t have stable internet connection, making online learning a nightmare. For those who did have a decent set-up, the temptations of all the things at their home grabbed viciously at their attention. For those who were lucky enough to have a good setup and find a way to not get distracted, the thing stopping them from thriving could be the lack of friends or social interaction.

            Overall I believe we can say with confidence, this has been the worst learning experience the world has ever been through. We do not blame you CUSD, we actually thank you for trying your hardest but nobody was prepared for this so nobody is upset at you for the current circumstances. We want you to stand with the students and parents and cancel the first semester finals for the 2020-2021 year. We can all agree that with hybrid learning, things have gotten a little better, but that does not mean that the students in your schools are at the top of their game.

            As Highschool is where grades and finals really count, it would be soulless and blatantly insensitive to let your students mark their permanent record up with statistics that don’t truly represent how well they strive to achieve or learn. Just as you wouldn’t want someone to cheat a score that doesn’t actually represent their learning skill, you wouldn’t want a bad grade to do the inverse. The proposition of this petition is to, as stated prior, cancel the finals or at least, nullify their effect in our grades. The ball is in your court CUSD. Either listen or leave your students with a stain on their records.
