My dc is in a well-regarded D2 public in 2nd grade and I'm so frustrated with what our new remote reality looks like. We got the schedule for the week and it's 80-100mins of live instruction a day, 20 of which are PE or another specialty class. tLas week they needed 2 days to train the teachers in remote learning so we had almost no live teaching. This seems like the barest minimum according to the DOE's guidelines and of course the school keeps stressing they don't want kids in front of screens all day. Shouldn't we be past that mentality at this point? Isn't a kid learning from a teacher on a screen a little different than watching videos? And aren't we far enough into this pandemic to realize that hours on screens every day is the least of our worries?
