Why online schools can’t teach all the students they need to teach them, experts say
Deeksha educators online, teachers offline,and educators in the classroom all tell a similar story: They can’t provide all the information they need, and they need more teachers to teach.
But it’s a story that has grown even more complex as online education has grown.
In 2016, more than 2.5 million students attended online classes, according to the latest report from the National Center for Education Statistics.
That was nearly 20% of the total number of students in grades K-12.
And in 2017, online students accounted for more than half of the students enrolled in high schools, according the National Institute for Educational Statistics.
The problem is compounded by the fact that many schools aren’t doing enough to teach students how to read and write.
In fact, the number of high schoolers who have never had a teacher online has risen dramatically in recent years, according a new report from The New York Times.
The report estimates that more than 70% of students who had never had an online teacher in their school are now using a tablet or a smartphone.
And the number is rising faster than the national average.
According to the report, “The number of Americans who have not been online for a year or more is up by nearly 6%.”
That’s a number that includes some of the nation’s poorest and most disadvantaged students.
The study notes that this problem is particularly acute for students who have disabilities.
The report notes that the number “of students who are visually impaired or are in a physically handicapped category is increasing in both high schools and colleges.”
Students who have difficulty with reading and writing also face a higher chance of dropping out of high schools.
According to the study, “In a 2014 national survey, just 8% of all high school students said they had ever completed a college course on the subject.”
That number was up to 25% in 2015, and it is expected to rise to 30% by 2021.
And with many students in these communities, it’s not uncommon for students to drop out of school because they are too busy to finish the course.
But these problems aren’t limited to the kids in these underserved communities.
A report by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) estimates that as many as 60% of college students do not have an online course.
And even if you get an online degree, it may not be enough for you to succeed in school.
The AAUW study found that more women are choosing to drop or delay starting a family or taking on student debt than men, as well.
That’s why it’s critical that we ensure that all students have access to a high quality education.
