Will the Coronavirus Revolutionize Education?

This is a chance, during a crisis, to modernize our 19th century education system.  We already have an online community college system run by the State.  There are online charter schools.  We have the Kahn academy that is a better teacher, subject by subject then a local school filled with teachers who think their job is to promote social justice.

“It’s my estimation that this will be an awakening for countless American K-12 school students — and their parents — that these students actually don’t have to attend a ‘brick and mortar’ public school in order to receive a high-quality education, followed by a diploma.  Once these students begin their online tasks, they may come to the realization that online learning is far more in-depth, far more rigorous, far more interesting, and yet far more quiet, as they don’t have to look to see who is about to get into a physical fight, or detest attending classes where teachers are indoctrinating them with their own personal ideologies.  Therefore, the presence of this virus and the forced school closings that have occurred as a result, have perhaps created the next wave of individualists and online learners in America.

We need to bring education, like other industries, into the 21st century.  It saves money, provides better education, does not abuse the students and even helps the environment.  School property could be used for affordable housing, instead of political indoctrination.  What do you thin, time to upgrade education?

    It sure could. Online education may be a way to get away from all this special concern for micro-group LGBT (and all the rest of the alphabet) and teach math, science and language skills.

    Also, the need for smaller classrooms will not be necessary and the value of the teachers unions may be reduced. Also, the State Department of Education employees may be reduced. A win/win except for BIG EDUCATION.
