Student Cons

FIVE Consistent Student Comments on the Cons of Virtual School:

  • More of a chance to procrastinate
  • Isolation can get lonely and depressing
  • Wi-Fi issues/not being able to connect to the internet
  • Not being able to hang out with friends
  • Being stressed out from the work overload
  • BONUS: Not having face to face learning

Here are three random student opinions from the survey, which are all anonymous:

“Absolutely terrible, we are given nothing but busy work, pointless google meets, bad internet connections, I don’t get to see my friends, it feels like we are getting our senior year taken from us just like our sophomore and junior year, one of my nursing classes has to be completed in person, so we are getting really behind in it.”

“It’s hard to focus/learn, hard to get the motivation to do the work, and I’m stuck in my room alone with none of my friends.”

“Kinda boring, sometimes confusing, and can be kinda depressing.”

My Personal Opinion: The downfall of being virtual is students’ mental health crashes, kids are less motivated, and engage in major procrastination.
