A Face Book friend has asked for opinions about kids returning to in person school. Hers have been home all year, while others have been hybrid Now that schools are officially opening up, what should she do? Here’s my posted response.
If I were your kid’s teacher I would want her/him physically to cross our classroom threshold and join our learning community. I would want that because I believe that having kids present in person is best for for their social, emotional, and intellectual well being, for the classroom community, and for the society as a whole. Growing up in a positive, loving learning environment with our peers helps us be positive, loving participants in the world.
