Critics of online learning seem unable to keep their criticisms straight. One minute COOLS are the end of the world as we know it because all the poor, disadvantaged, struggling kids will be enrolled with them and left to fail without the help of ” real teachers” but then…
Thinking about enrolling your child in an online school? No problem if you can afford to pay for it.
While that creates inequity in the state schooling system, it’s nothing new, says the Ministry of Education.
So now the inequality is not that the poor, disadvantaged kids will be left to rot on COOLS but that the rich, privileged kids will be the only ones lucky enough to have access to them! The only thing that is actually clear about the teacher unions’ position on COOLS is that they are against them.
