What do school closures mean for children?

3 years ago

Gonna be big changes if the outbreak continues for a longer time. Here in Vietnam, we're seeing what 2 months of school closures mean.

Children go to work with their parents now. My breakfast Pho place has a little dude who man's the register and is learning how the business works from his family.

Kids play in the park after morning studies at home.

It's not all sun and roses of course, but it's an interesting forced experiment that's happening under our very noses. The big losers are people who see the "school building" as the only way to learn. The winners are going to be those who embrace methods and technologies that help people learn without the rote of the traditional classroom.
