Do You Think Schools and Colleges Will Be Open to All Students in September

Ask a Question

With schools and colleges being closed to most students, I’m concerned our children, especially the disadvantaged children are falling behind with their education. Disappointed with the way government has handled the whole situation. Let’s hope they get their act together and support schools and colleges to get all students back into education.

chelseaturpin I have heard that, however what worries me is that some of our children / young people do not have access to a working laptop or internet so will be disadvantaged as not able to participate in online learning

A lot of universities have announced that they will do inline learning for the first term at least, perhaps colleges will do the same.

mazza2112 yes I understand, for university students at least their student loan and grant should make sure they are able to afford this, students can also apply for a hardship fund if for instance they couldn't afford a laptop. Obviously this doesn't quite apply for school and college students.

I think that reception and year one should not re open.

Those small kids can not social distance or wear a face mask.

I do not get it why they can not move education online...like that students could watch private school tutors too from other schools...and they could all stay safe...

The aim is to get them opened up as soon as possible, with September being the period where they expect all institutions to be up and running. We shall see

My daughter has been back at school since the start of June. I honestly think they need to get the children back to school sooner rather than later. Children need interaction with their peers. Being isolated and away from what they know (in a school setting) will only “damage” their mental health.
