For most of this school year (2020-21) all students have been doing online learning. And it has been difficult for students to pay attention to all the home distractions and deal with all the technical difficulties. Most students in virtual learning have not been doing as well as if they were in real-life school. And (it depends on the teacher) 80% of students cant keep up will all the work they're getting. Many are already struggling with the stress of the SOLs coming up and other things going on in their lives, such as Covid. This year students in TC Williams and students on the Minnie Howard campus have already taken their finals for half their classes and it's unfair for us to take the second half along with the SOLs. And other high schools in Virginia would have to take their finals and their SOLs in roughly the same time period. That much stress, keeping up with all the work, the finals at the end of the year is already enough. But adding SOLs to the list is completely unnecessary. That stress on a child is unhealthy and if it is preventable, it should be prevented.
