The risks in beginning the 2020 fall term aren’t limited to contracting COVID.
As schools start the fall 2020 semester during a pandemic there’s no consistent plan on how to get the year rolling without risk to both teachers and students. And that’s not just in terms of contracting COVID-19. Younger students will certainly suffer in terms of their ongoing education, but also from the psychological impact that comes with being separated from classmates and social interaction. Teachers, who already work tirelessly, will need to up their game to keep students on track. Tracy Stedry, with a background in psychology and a recently retired 20-year veteran of elementary school classrooms, shares her insights about what might and might not work so well, the impact on child development, and the inequities and shortcomings of remote learning.
