Talking to my coworkers with K-6 children and my grandkids I get the impression trying to teach a first grader on Zoom is a waste of time for the student, teacher, parent and anyone else involved. Rather than keep pretending the kids are getting an education we would be better off closing the schools, furloughing the teachers and saving some money until in person classes can resume. The school district my grandkids are in are giving parents the choice of in person or remote education and last spring things went so poorly with the remote option they are attending in person despite living with someone with health issues that make COVID a real threat. But I do not have any kids that age living with me and am getting my information second hand. Do those of you with children "attending" elementary school remotely feel the same or is it not as bad as I have heard?
