Virus spurs unexpected test for US schools: Online learning
from The Associated Press
The coronavirus shutdowns have launched an unplanned, unprecedented experiment with online education at schools across the U.S., and the nation's largest school system plunged in as New York City asked over 1.1 million students to log in and learn. After a whirlwind week of planning, students — those who could — signed in to Google classrooms and Zoom video conferences for virtual versions of everything from high-school English discussions to kindergarten gym classes. City officials were still trying to get laptops to hundreds of thousands of students in need. Parents grappled with how much to expect of their schools, their kids and themselves.
