Remote learning is leaving an entire generation behind!  Middle School students are expected to go online for the equivalent of a full school day 9-4.  This is ENTIRELY too long for anyone with only a 30 minute break!  Elementary and High School students are usually done by 12:30 or 1:00. If students are lucky, they can finish their assignments during class, otherwise you can add addition time to their day beyond 4pm.  Parents, including myself, have no other option than to quit work and stay home with their kids.  If you haven’t had the opportunity to sit through an entire school day while kids are remote you will not understand.  These children are alienated from friends, social connections and physical activity daily.  It is causing anxiety, mental depression, and rising suicidal rates.  WE ARE LOSING OUR KIDS!  They lost part of their education last year and promoted to the next grade.  Most internet connections IF kids have one are not reliable on a daily basis.  The failure rate among students this year is higher than normal. I feel a lot of pressure has been placed on teachers to “make the grade” causing more “busy work” rather than actual learning.  Parents cannot and should not be expected to teach remotely what educators have a degree in.  We are doing a huge injustice to this generation if we don’t stand up for them now.  I would much rather my child repeat her current grade next year than to have her emotional and physical state compromised by lawmakers who want to push these kids to the next grade like a herd of cattle!  Is the state of NC more concerned about a pass/fail rate, or the future generation of kids who may or may not be productive citizens.   NC educators can’t account for 10,000 to 15,000 kids this year already amid the Covid-19 pandemic according to apnea’s.com.  Will these kids be promoted anyway?  It’s time to PAUSE remote learning for the 2020/2021 school year.  Let’s get this pandemic if not behind us at least under control to a point where families are not forced to choose between going to work or home schooling.  Private schools are not an option for everyone.

I’M DONE! I CHOOSE MY CHILD’S WELL-BEING !   PARENTS FOR HAPPY HEALTHY KIDS!
