Seriously after 18 months we haven’t figured out how to accommodate special needs students during this COVID era?

We don’t have a vaccine for kids under 12 and a lot of special needs students have immunity issues. Virtual learning done right should be prioritized for children with immune issues. Virtual learning should not be just for nonspecial needs students either.

I don’t agree with Biden administration about virtual learning. Ideally all kids should be in school but these are not normal times. We should have virtual learning for all who have immunity issues.

Also education in 2021 should be mainly virtual. I would have done three days virtual and two days in class. For example M/Tu just 10th graders W/Th just 11th graders and Fri/Sat just seniors.

Did Biden say we should have virtual learning when it’s a normal time?

Well his Secretary of Education never got that message.

Doesn't @wally work with special needs students? Perhaps he could shed some light on the subject.

The problem with any sort of plan involving kids in school a couple days and virtual a couple days is that either:

1) They just aren't getting any instruction on their virtual days or
2) You're dealing with concurrent learning (some kids virtual, some hybrid) which, with all due respect, can f*** the hell right off. It's all the drawbacks of both virtual and face-to-face with none of the benefits of either. Whatever stupid a****** decided that concurrent learning would work last year should be tied to a chair in a teachers' lounge.

Virtual learning with students with special needs was mostly a failure. It worked with some kids with emotional disorders or autism spectrum disorder, where a lot of their problems were social interactions, but otherwise, it was awful and there's nothing that would feasibly make it non-awful. I'd say the real approach that needs to happen with those kids is getting them in as close to February 2020 conditions as possible with appropriate hazard pay for the teaching staff and regular testing of both students and teachers.

Are you kidding? My city can't figure out how to educate general education students.

Send them back to school. That's the only way to minimize damage.

Oh, immunity issues? Ehhhh

One silver lining I've noticed is that schools have a system in place to go remote for non-pandemic reasons. A school near me has to close for a few days to fix a gas leak but because they know how to do remote learning they can stay at home.
