Those with school-age children will experience a radical new normal. With the education budget down 14% I think will force dramatic changes. Meaning smaller schools. Meaning a combination of home and gathering on alternate days. Those teachers/instructors that grasp online will thrive while others will retire early, be released and exit. Teachers unions may decline to become useless, then nonexistent. In all around a better path forward for a failed system out of control.
Here locally, schools have become $10 million to $30 million structures, added over-the-top auditoriums along with a minimum of two football fields and baseball of course. And bands which seldom comprehend support for a football game. All well-meaning but simply crazy.
Education has basically failed by losing focus. Good teachers have been overwhelmed with stupid stuff. Unions have focused on tenure to guarantee non-performers a life job. In all a mess, all across the U.S. Welcome, the new normal. Welcome back, education.
