I’m Eli Copes and I am starting this petition to end the use of PLP, Edgenuity, IXL, and all other online learning platforms for Shelby county schools. There have been many problems with students being able to submit forms on each of the platforms. There have also been many problems with teachers entering grades and opening/closing assignments. Teachers have been instructed to close assignments at the end of each learning period (week) and by doing that yes it makes sure students submit assignments on time but also stops teachers from being able to grade the assignments. When the teachers close the assignment they can no longer grade it. They open the next assignment when they close one and they have to open the previous one back up in order to grade it. When they do that the students are then blocked out of the current assignment until the teacher closes the previous one back down. These are only a few of many problems that have been caused by the use of these platforms. Students and teachers have both been annoyed by these platforms. I will not name names of teachers because I know they are not supposed to state there opinion but I along with plenty of other students have personally heard teachers say that these programs are not working how they are supposed to and that they do not like them. I know many schools do not have many options up to this point because of the virus going around but for 1.some schools are just using google classroom and teachers can post their own assignments for virtual and traditional students so the teachers still get to teach and go over their own curriculum and no student will fall behind if they get sent home. And I know Shelby county schools will be going back to 5 days a week in school on September 14th which should open up more learning options. These platforms should no longer be needed. Please help me to put an end to the use of all these individual platforms in Shelby county schools such as PLP, Edgenuity, IXL, and any more our school system may be using. I along with many other students have learned little to none through these programs and would be a lot better off with out that. I personally have always had pretty good grades as high as A’s and a few B’s on average and am now stifling with some classes. I know some other students are having the same problems. I feel that ending the use of these platforms in our schools will improve grades and GPA’s for students of all grades and in various classes. Thank you and have a great day.
