Aiden Pauling started this petition to Northgate Students and

To begin with, This petition was put into creation because of the outrageous backlash against the program "Edgenuity" being used through Northgate Middle High School. This program is used as a main source for assignments and learning for the students. Although to the immediate glance of those who are not a student make the program seem as though it would be of good use, it is not for those forced to use it for their education. 

Next, Edgenuity cuts learning and communication off from the student and the teachers. This problem is very large considering after this program was introduced, The grades of the average student have plummeted severely, making it an absolute pain for especially the high schoolers being forced into using it. These average grade dips are effecting the mental and emotional health of the subjects, as well as their possible future in higher education.

Furthermore, Edgenuity fails completely when it comes to the actual learning experience of a student, as it cuts out the typical student and teacher relation that is a large part of what makes American schools successful. Most teachers can assign an amount of assignments (being something to read or complete), and have that be the grade for that certain day. That strategy demolishes the motivation given to students by their teacher and peers that can be found in a standard virtual or real life class.

In conclusion, I, along with a majority of Northgate students, believe that the "Edgenuity" program should no longer be integrated into the learning of the students at the school and should be completely removed.
