Online Schooling To Continue Beyond Pandemic

With the Covid-19 Pandemic slowly coming to a close as vaccines become available to citizens around the world, many are ready to return to their normal lives.  Students will be returning to school as well as employees returning to the office.  For most this is a welcome change back to a former way of life, for others, the Pandemic has provided a lifestyle that in many ways is preferable.

As I’m sure we have all experienced, many young students grow to detest going to school and as a result, find it hard to focus on their schoolwork.  These same young students have found that throughout the pandemic online schooling allowed them to have better focus, enjoyed learning, and were even able to get along better with their classmates.

With the practice of online school becoming more widely desired, many schools are instituting an online option for the upcoming semester this Fall.  As many as 13,000 schools across the country have implemented an online program that they intend on continuing for years to come.

While online school appears to be favorable for some, several parents and lawmakers are actively pushing to revert to a classic learning environment as soon as possible.  The opponents of online schooling argue that there has been a significant decrease in academic success and the mental health of students during their time in an online school.  This appears to be true for the general population of young students, it does not, however, seem like a valid reason for removing the option of online schooling entirely.  The schools that intend on creating continuous online programs are planning on hiring their own set of teachers and administrators in which their primary focus will be that of online learning.

Some school districts had intentions of creating an online learning program long before the Pandemic ever began.  The reason behind this is that many students and parents prefer online learning due to convenience, health concerns, bullying, or even discrimination.  Some self-motivated students also find a “work at your own pace” style of learning to be very beneficial especially when they have a parent there to help them through the process.

Online school is not for everyone, and the majority of students are anxious to return to an in-person learning environment.  With that being said, it appears that by offering the option of online schooling several students could benefit that otherwise would not fit into a standard learning environment.

Kim Kardashian is facing backlash after flying her family and friends on a lavish getaway for her 40th birthday amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The KKW Beauty founder posted several pics with family and friends including Kris Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, La La Anthony, Scott Disick, and Tristan Thompson, as they celebrated her birthday without a mask in sight. Her husband, Kanye West, was also there despite being absent from photos, something very on brand for Kanye.

“After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time,” she shared on social media on Tuesday. “We danced, rode bikes, swam near whales, kayaked, watched a movie on the beach and so much more. I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is. #thisis40”

Despite recognizing her privilege and noting the health precautions that were taken to avoid the spread of COVID-19, Twitter users sounded off at Kardashian for her tone-deaf post.

“I haven’t seen ma family in 4 months because I work a public-facing job and I’m absolutely terrified of the possibility of passing Covid on to my vulnerable parents. I hope you had fun pretending things were normal, but spare a thought for those of us staying in the real world,” one person tweeted to Kardashian.

Kardashian public relations representatives did not respond for comment.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.
