If I had to reflect on this experience it’s been pretty stressful. It’s hard to keep up with mountains of
assignments, and not being specific, but teachers are ignoring this. Let me do a bit of math. Let’s say on
one virtual school day, the average students get maybe 3 things to do a day from the average virtual
learning teacher. Each assignment takes maybe 10-15 minutes, that’s already 30-45 minutes from one
class. Now let’s say you go to your next class, get 3 more assignments. That’s already six assignments,
60-90 minutes already for 2 classes. You go to the next class, that’s 3 more. You go the next one and
that’s your entire school day. 3 x 4=12, that’s 12 assignments in ONE day. MIND YOU the time for school
has been cut, so STUDENTS the ones who are supposed to be learning, are too busy being rushed to
complete assignments. If you’re going to cut the amount of time we have, why on sweet baby Jesus’s
great green earth, would you NOT have teachers edit their workload as well. And let me uh, dissolve the
whole “College isn’t going to hold your hand” fallacy. We KNOW college isn’t going to hold our hands. So
why not cut us some slack before we get into the real world? We live in completely different times now.
You don’t even have to go to college to get rich anymore. The world is nitty gritty right now so us as
students and EVEN YOU as teachers should deserve some slack right? The least they could’ve done was
cut assignment count in half if they were going to shorten our time. Half the time it’s the students being
rushed by teachers. And on top of that there are alot of students that would not be normally failing on a school day and should not be held for it.
