Gov. Andrew Cuomo suggested today that remote learning could become a permanent part of life for New York students, even after the coronavirus pandemic ends.
“The old model of everybody goes and sits in a classroom and the teacher is in front of that classroom and teaches that class and you do that all across the city, all across the state, all these buildings, all these physical classrooms,” Cuomo said during a press briefing in New York City. “Why? With all the technology you have?”
Cuomo didn’t say buildings won’t reopen at all. But the state is exploring the possibility that schools will use distance learning in bigger ways in the future, he said.
He acknowledged New York is still new at this and learning as it goes along. Teachers need training. Some students still need devices.
The pandemic will spark a willingness to change and adapt, Cuomo added. After all this, he said people will realize how vulnerable we are and understand the need for a new approach to education.
The state is partnering with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to design a blueprint for post-pandemic education in New York, Cuomo said.
Schools in the state will stay closed through the end of the current academic year.
There you go folks…. Such corruption – Gates Foundation has no place in the world specifically in schools.
