Report: Students on fully remote learning less likely to move to next grade level than hybrid students
A new report shows many Connecticut
students are still struggling to learn during the pandemic.
The study sampled
over 12,000 students. Some of them were at
Westhill in Stamford and Brien McMahon in Norwalk, finding 46% of remote
students were off track.
Bridgeport Superintendent Michael
Testani says because of too many distractions,
remote learning is not effective.
He says once teachers start getting
the COVID-19 vaccine next month, that will pave the way for more students to go
back to in-school learning.
Rise Network says some school districts are even allowing students who don't
feel comfortable coming to school during the week to go in on Saturdays.
