In Montgomery County, Schools And Parents Clash Over How Much Teachers And Students Are Connecting
When the coronavirus pandemic closed schools in Maryland, Brian Krantz expected that his children’s classes would move online, with a thoughtful plan and at least some live instruction.
It didn’t go as he imagined.
The first sound of a teacher’s voice leading a lesson, he said, came about six weeks into the school closures. Even now, he said, his 12-year-old daughter’s teachers mostly post assignments and recorded materials, leaving virtual office hours as the main time for questions or any live interaction with them.
