    1. I don’t know Fero2A. You and I agree on almost everything until now. Are you a parent? I’ve been in education for 30 years and from what I’m hearing parents are getting a quick education on how hard it actually is for us to teach their kids! Our teachers are providing on-line instruction as best as they can but not being there in person to provide that one-on-one instruction, reinforcement and support means parents have to pick up that slack. They’re finding out it’s not as easy as it seems.
