      Vote who out? Parents?
      I don’t think you can vote your parents out of the decision making process for their kids. Lol

    He always sounds like he is selling his answer to you before he gives you his answer and then I’m not really sure he answers the question at all! 🤣👍🏻🙌🏼

    So if the parents make the best decision for their children vaccines won’t be mandatory for the public school sector

    • Shawn Dowdall | March 25, 2021 at 1:54 PM | Reply

      Nope. It will be

    • vaccines aren’t for kids yet, but school teachers, education staff, yes. Parents don’t make that decision. Parents can opt to keep their kids home for online learning. Schools are babysitters for working parents who want it all.

    Teachers’ union making teachers obsolete LOLOLOLOL

  6. online learning is terrible for children, they are being removed from basic socialization with other children. disgusting to think of this becoming permanent. raising a bunch of zombies glued to their tablets.

  7. The patsies started making themselves obsolete with google classroom a long time ago….

    invested what into online learning? what happened to getting children back into schools to benefit their mental health? So cut public school funding? What are you doing to our public school funding? I know you know nothing about it as you were a private school kid.

  9. Online is the fastest environmentally freindly way to learn facts instead of Marxist theology.

  10. Wow imagine a world with out the whiney teachers union wooooooo!

    Not only online learning. I bet you family doctors and so on will continue with phone calls/e-mails/video chat appointments from now on.

  12. …… this is the most stupid idea I have ever herd!!!!

    I was just wondering how this minister is going to control when siblings are completing each others test during online learning in the same home?? For example::
    Gr.12 completes gr.9’s math test while both are on line during class time…. and so on … and the teacher from the other side of the screen ( on line learning platform…) can’t do nothing to control that

    Children learn and prepare only in school!!!! Sir!!!
    May be you need to go back to school in order to figure that out Mr.minister!!!

    You are destroying the well being of these poor kids! What next? Your plans will suck the life out of our children, shame on you!! What about single parents that can’t afford computers for each child, the single parent that has to go out to their job so that he/she can pay the bills. Who will look after the children?

    Health and wellness??? What about the mental health of the children.

      Having the option of learning online would benefit some kids. School can be hell for kids with social anxiety or who get pushed around. My friends son went from a C to an A average when he started online because in person school was not the best option for him . The thing is we have to figure out how to do it right.

    • ​@Kaleidoscope Eyes How are kids going to make friends? They will be socially isolated and permanently damaged.

  16. Ban On-Campus Learnings!

    Online learning does not work for 90% of kids. They need adult supervision and teachers helping them learn. Students right now are not engaged in learning. They miss classes or tune out. They go back to sleep, work is not being completed, technology is not always available, socializing is obsolete. How can this government believe that online learning is best for kids? Parents know their kids need to be in school to learn.

    I’ve never seen a politician speak so much to say so little about something he understands NOTHING about…
