Please shoot my ideas down if you feel I am talking through the top of my head, but also excuse me because, as an oldie, I am long out of the educational system.
Would it be possible for schools to divide classes into two, e.g an “a” and a “b” section, have the “a” section of the class come into school on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and the “b” section come in on Tuesday and Thursday; then reverse that the next week. It would require desks being relocated 6 feet apart, separation lines being placed in corridors, etc., and major disinfection every day. But it would mean students could interact with teachers face to face, and maybe not lose so much of their education of last year.
I realize this is an idea completely outside the box, but would it work to help our students keep up to date with their education?
