FCPS Needs To Be Reminded What Education Is
|Children are waiting eagerly to see and talk with their teachers.|
Since we already have lesson plans, both children and parents need the communication with teachers. What are the children supposed to do? No one has a clue unless a child's parent knows a thing or two regarding what the purpose of these lesson plans is. Everyone who is given a task needs to know what is there at the end. Teachers need to know what their students are doing with these lesson plans. Otherwise, we are simply killing trees and supporting the post office, which may not be a bad thing during these times. But wasting paper certainly is bad.
Teachers have tools to reach their students. We should let all the teachers teach. We should let the teachers reach their pupils. If the learning packets cannot be obtained online because of an unstable platform, there is really no problem if we already have the learning packets as hard copies. There are enough lessons in these packets. What is missing is feedback. What is missing is the two-way communication between teachers and their students. We do not need to retain a law firm. We do not need a group of businessmen. We simply need to allow teachers to reach their students. We need to be as flexible as possible.
