Pretty much how I expect it to go, most places.

Suddenly, our decision to homeschool for the last 11 years and into the future seems like a fantastic decision. I'd recommend parents with the ability look into it, because you'll provide a much better education in the midst of this mess than they'll get otherwise.

Obviously there is still the issue of how to manage a job while having your kid home all day, but I'm only talking about the education piece. And every kid/situation is different, so clearly this wouldn't work for everyone.
Are you suggesting that they just basically skip this year and start next? If so, I see one major problem....what do you do with the incoming kids? Have one mega class next year, that has to maintained throughout the next 11? Or just make every one from here on out start a year later, making the new graduation age 19?

Great questions. I'm trying to talk on a case by case level, and I have no answer for what to do with all children.

From an education standpoint, I don't see a big deal (for most kids) if they were to graduate at 19 instead of 18. Over time you can filter kids back in to their respective grade level without creating a mega class or permanently upping the graduation age to 19.

I bet admission requirements for university/ colleges next year will be increasing.. More people means a higher grade point average required. My daughter is a Grad 2020, I kinda feel like they got a free pass for the last semester and now there's a few kids taking a year off to think.

My brother got nailed back in 2000 ish when they cancelled grade 13 in Ontario, the avg for ubc went from a C+ to a solid B.

One thing I'm thinking of is all the kids I see in the grocery stores now without masks (Colorado only mandates 11 and older). What happens when they're all in school together and then stopping by the grocery store on the way home with the parents? (not blaming you parents btw).

I need to start visiting the store at very off-peak hours.

Once you start shopping at 7am, you'll NEVER go back to shopping at any other time.

The parents should be arrested for sending their Covid+ child to school!
