In light of Covid-19, many schools are going online. This change will hurt millions of Americans, whether it be by a lesser impact on the students or a lack of resources. The students of America already have a faulty education system, and now it will become worse. The way to solve this isn't by forcing the students to meet some arbitrary requirement, it is by fixing the arbitrary requirement itself. The way to fix the problem is by giving students resources to learn on their own which has been studied, shown in these 2 articles https://www.edsurge.com/news/2019-10-03-the-incredible-benefits-of-letting-students-drive-their-own-learning https://www.gettingsmart.com/2017/12/can-students-learn-entirely-on-their-own/
And online learning isn't a fair method of instruction for the students because they don't have the human element or they don't have the resources to be able to learn online. As a student of Tennessee and as an American, I don't think we should force students to learn during this crisis, don't get me wrong I love learning, but it is a bad idea to continue this course of action, so please don't, for the sake of many Americans.
