I honestly don't know what would be best in this situation. One could easily make remote learning the norm till things subside, but, this puts students from disadvantaged homes at a disadvantage (the rural/township student doesnt have a laptop or a 100Mbps fibre connection). Even if a plan was made to assist less fortunate students, there is no garuantee the assistance will be used (i.e.: an irresponsible parent will take the donated laptop and modem and sell them off so they can buy less important items... or the student sells them off). Really unprecedented times we are in; would love to see what the state's final verdict is on the matter.
