#1 About K12 Curricula
K12 Remote Learning is NOT about recreating the classroom.
You do NOT have to follow a schedule. Schedules are for management. Kids need a direction that interests them. If they are interested they will do it on their own, and not all learning has to do with a state standard.
Students may not have a computer or an internet connection, or a printer, or a cell phone, maybe kids will need to help to provide basic needs for the house and family.
If you the parent can’t cope with teaching your children you can choose to take your child OUT OF the schools’ virtual learning plan. You do not have to participate and be miserable with teaching young children, while you are still working from home too. YOU CAN QUIT!
Effective Distance Learning Strategies
In this time of emergency you may find the principals of the keep strategies schools have implemented and benfit from their examples.
ACTUALLY THE K12 DIGITAL DIVIDE THAT HAS BEEN WITH US SINCE 1994 AND NEVER SOLVED IS EXPOSED AS A CRISIS OF STUPIDITY ON THE GOVERNMENTS PART.
THERE HAS ALWAYS BEEN SOLUTIONS << THAT MONEY WOULD HAVE SOLVED.>> BUT THE CORRUPTION OF PEOPLE AND THEIR BILLIONAIRE PROFITS CHEATED US OUT WHAT WE PAID FOR.
Your SCHOOL DISTRICT Wi-Fi boundaries CAN EXPAND so that students can sit in a courtyard or work at the sport’s field’s bleachers.
DIGITAL EQUITY “Everyone has the right to education.” Article 26 Universal Declaration of Human Rights 12/10/48
Your State Department of Education,
Your local School District,
Your classroom teacher…..
They aren’t going to grade the work. Everyone gets promoted.
Every school district has said all this work won’t actually be counted / graded – because it isn’t fair to kids who are unable to complete it (due to no computer, no printer, no internet, homelessness, not having a parent who can help them, etc).
“Students may not be able to take federal mandated standardized tests this spring…. We made the process to delay these tests for a year fast and painless (see Broad Flexibilities Provided to States to Bypass ESSA Mandated Testing for the 2019-20 School Year).
Forty-eight states and territories have already requested the waiver. We are approving the requests within 24 hours. [Approval letters are posted online.]”

We got rid of the Federal Department of Education before.
Now In 2020 – K12 Schools are Out! Remote Learning is In!
When the Federal Department of Education Policy, for all the State Departments of Education, Local School District Administrations, Local School Boards of Education, and finally your Teachers are told that they won’t need to grade or recognize any student work for this school year ….. There is a problem. THE HISTORIC BIG PICTURE
IN AMERICA: THEY GOT RID OF THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND STARTED THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS 1933 – 1942
Civilian Conservation Corps [CCC] National Archives of Records
In June 1933, the ECW decided that men in CCC camps could be given the opportunity of vocational training and additional education. Educational programs were developed that varied considerably from camp to camp, both in efficiency and results. More than 90 percent of all enrollees participated in some facet of the educational program. This program taught the population to read and write so well that the former Federal government employees got scared they wouldn’t be wanted or needed anymore, then they decided to abolished it! It worked too well.

US students are being asked to work remotely. But 22% of homes don’t have internet.
But nationwide, approximately 22% of households don’t have home internet, including more than 4m households with school-age children. Poor families and people of color are particularly affected – only 56% of households making less than $20,000 have home broadband, and black and Hispanic households lag behind their white counterparts even when we control for income differences. Even among students who theoretically have access, not all access is equal. According to census research, 8% of households who have internet rely exclusively on mobile broadband. Once again, low-income people and communities of color are disproportionately more likely to be mobile-only broadband adopters.
