#1 60 percent of parents surveyed said they will likely choose at-home learning

They write that as though its not part of the plan.

#4 Kids who want to learn will find a way even if you try to stop them. The notion that they need brick and mortar schools to learn is anachronistic and dishonest.

Kids who are indifferent or antagonistic to learning anything except how to get by on the street don't belong in classrooms at all, as all they do is disrupt those trying to learn and cause a waste of resources. Inner city schools have been promoting and graduating truants for years. It's no mystery that their budgets are based on headcounts, not outcomes.

Universities now admit according to a diversity schedule whether it's legally countenanced or not, to the disadvantage of students with superior grades but not enough or the wrong "intersectionality" boxes checked. Lots of corporations have to teach their new hires stuff that wasn't taught or absorbed effectively in the high priced diploma mills.

It's time for education to become a fee for use commodity delivered however the customer wants and subject to all market forces.

Stop tossing old people out of their homes because they can't carry the "public education establishment" on their retired backs anymore.

#5 Harvard University announced that it will not require standardized test scores for the class of 2025. Students are instead encouraged to submit information about their community involvement and high school accomplishments

Maybe not the right time to abolish H1B visas?

#6 No problem, the Ivys will just get faculty, staff and alumni to adopt the incoming foreign students.

#7 Why open up when they can take in the same amount of money but not have the expenses of busing, cooking, maintenance, security, sexual assault lawsuits, athletics insurance, so forth.

Why, with the right PR Teachers are Struggling campaign, they can get a raise for doing less, then later claim re-opening is too expensive.

Wife comes from a different direction; that the students are going to spend so much time doing the safety dance, they won't have time to do anything else; wasted day. The whole thing is a farce anyways because that one kid from the family which always seems to get head lice will wreck the procedure from the git-go.

Done.

Kahn Academy you say?
