Staying at home
Internet School companies (like Connections Academy and K-12.com) have been advertising like crazy on my tv. I would not be surprised, with the kind of chaos that we are seeing around these discussions if parents aren't signing their kids up for these schools in much higher numbers than normal. What you get is a school curriculum and teachers that are proven and experienced and a lot less chaos. Plus these are technically public school so they don't cost you anything.I've already seen several comments from parents on my Facebook suggesting that, if schools aren't going to provide in-person instruction in 2020-21, then maybe the school year should just be canceled altogether, or maybe they will consider opting of the school system entirely rather than doing the school-sponsored remote learning next year.
Some school districts already have a number of independent learning options. Our school district has at least one and it's open to everyone in the county regardless of their school district. I bet they double their enrollment next year.
Finally, I suspect families where one parent stays home will be looking at true homeschooling as well.
Mr. Mac and I talked about it last night. We agreed that if our kids were school-aged, we would not be sending them back to in-person school. I'm not planning to go back to the office until at least the end of the year so why would I send my kids back to school?
