Debate - What should the next school year look like? #605 05/18/2020 2:02 PM

Debating Real World Issues

Theme: What should the next school year look like?

With the importance of social distancing during the pandemic, what will the new normal look like for our schools?

Think about it. Is it even possible to keep a six foot distance between desks in a classroom of 20 computers? How would lunch work?

Here are two ideas to consider.

Option 1: Have an A day/B day schedule, where the year rolls along with alternating sets of students. Half of the student population would go to school on A day, the other half of the student population would go to school on B day. This would effectively cut the size of every class in half, making social distancing more possible.

Option 2: The elementary school children need the most hands on help right now. Middle and High school students are more mature, and can better adapt to online classes. All of the middle and high school buildings could be used as elementary schools so that our youngest kids can get the start they need. This would also help fill a child-care void for parents who need to work.

What are your thoughts? Where do you stand on this topic? Do you have another idea for us to consider? Support your answer!

Well I think that option 1 is the best to do because everybody is not mature enough to do option 2 and just like elementary school some high school and middle school learns better in person then online not knowing how the teacher reacts or thinks the best way to do like math or your class precisely.

Both Option 1 and 2 are reasonable giving the circumstances. I´m thinking maybe we can build new buildings in order to be able to all learn or we can also remodel the abandoned schools and send students to the school they live closest to. Either way things won´t be the same for a long time and no one is gonna be happy with whatever solution accomack county decides.
