This. I wish we could have, unvaccinated due to age, Girlchild doing remote learning, but it was a complete shitshow. Technically she’s in a GATE/advanced learning program, but you would have had no idea given what was going on last year. And our district had laptops for all the kids, and contracts with various educational software companies (that they were already using in class). But even with that it was a poor shadow of in person schooling. We supplemented with online tutoring (Kumon), but that only goes so far, and isn’t an option for everyone due to expense.
It’s at a point now where it has to be a calculated risk, to have normal social interactions and schooling, while doing our damndest to minimize risk. But minimal risk is not a non-zero risk.
