I've put a lot of thought into this personally, and I know many others have as well. I think the idea might sound insane and many won't take it seriously or agree, but I think it's something to be seriously put into consideration. The World that we are living in right now, is nothing like many of us have ever experienced. 2020 brought on many challenges and changes which were good and bad. As many students are out of school, they're doing it online. With online schooling, comes many challenges. To the students of course, the teachers, the parents/guardians, and society on it's own.

Many don't see the challenges brought by online learning. Some families don't have internet access, some struggle with internet problems, some don't understand/struggle with technology, some don't have adults or older siblings around to help, some don't understand what they're doing. The list could on and and in much more detail. The problem is, is that everyone is struggling with online learning in some way. I know personally, I'm not learning as I should be, and it is very hard for me to learn online. I've experienced internet problems and technology problems. I also have a very full house, so I tend to have distraction and problems with finding a quiet place. I have problems signing into some of my classes, and getting to the work I need. And I struggle with learning on my own. Of course I have teachers guiding me and trying their best to help, but it is a struggle and I know many others that could agree. I can't pay attention nearly as well as in person learning. I often get distracted or tired or loose my motivation. I can't always ask for help like I can in school. I have had a significant drop in my grades and missing assignments. Due to many things such as lack of communication, lack of motivation, lack of attention, and lack of learning. I know that those could be excuses and very well could happen in school as well. However, it is much more common while in online school. We as students are not only supposed to be paying attention and juggling our own lives, but we are also holding ourselves responsible and accountable for getting school done. I don't think a lot of people get the stress and the worry of school right now. The way that it has affected everyone is crazy. I know many students are struggling more than ever. The way we're learning isn't just affecting our grades, it's affecting our health physically, emotionally, and mentally. Many can't take it. 

To many, this might seem a lot easier, or it might be a lot easier. But there are also a lot of people who aren't doing well. I worry about my future and my grades and the learning that I am receiving right now. I know that there isn't much to do, but I don't think just moving on and getting it over with is going to help anything or create a successful generation. If we do this, I worry for many of our futures and what our world will be like. I think it would be very beneficial to put a hold on school, and cancel the rest of this academic year, and as long as we need to. 

I am not at all condoning nor saying that we should be doing in school learning right now. I think that the world needs to overcome and figure out a lot before even thinking about allowing us to go back. So until we're all healthy and safe, I think staying at home is the best decision. However, I don't think doing online learning this year is the best decision. I truly believe that it would be much easier to wait on school. 

If you're struggling or know anyone who is, please sign this petition. And please reach out to as many as possible. And if absolutely necessary, contact hotlines.
