There's a lot I can write here but I think I'll keep it relatively short. OP, I think you greatly underestimate the power of face to face education. Your reasons for preferring it come from a place of convenience and better sleep, rather than actual practice differences. Consequently, you make reference to the difficulties in 2020 where schools were forced to go online that kids, a large number of kids suffered greatly. My step daughter included. You simply can't make the argument that just because kids have "busy" schedules that automatically means that they don't have to attend in person school. Kids need teachers, the environment of school, other kids etc this is a demonstrable fact. More so you neglecting to acknowledge that teachers Hassett struggle with teaching online because the amount of time they take to get kids to listen and pay attention is that much harder online than a classroom. You wanting to learn at your own pace is not good enough of reason to advocate for strictly at home learning. You're not really challenging the traditional viewpoint in my view rather you're describing a preference and I have to say your reasoning is flawed,

I'm not stating that this should be an option for all students and I do assume that my argument could be flawed, however I meant that it could be an optional choice for students who prefer it even though face to face interaction would be better

Okay but I disagree it should be an option. There shouldn't be a choice, school is school and unless there's an event that forces schools to close, kids should go to school. The amount of resources that would be required to cater to kids who want options doesn't justify making it an optional. Again, I understand your point of view, but I don't feel it's viable.

I would have to assume so. I've worked online for 25 years and love it.

If we ever get to a point were most jobs are remote / telework then you might be correct, but for now that's not the case. There are things you do in person at school that prepare you for later in life. Reports, presentations, group work. I know those things aren't everyone's favorite, but they are realistic aspects to most professional jobs.

Online schools suck. It's better in person, to chat and to get some air.

For me, it was literally the best thing that ever happened to me. Im not even exaggerating. When we went online, I wound up having to teach myself so I could understand what we were learning. And it worked 1000x better than when we were in-person. It helped that I actually had the *time* to teach myself. My grades went to Bs and As, which they hadn't been since 8th grade! My mental health was the best it ever was. I was less anxious and depressed and even slept better. Then we went back to in-person and everything tanked
