Attendance in traditional public schools is important. If a school age student does not attend school, there is an investigation into why. Children who have chronic absenteeism often drop out of school.
For many corporate bigwigs, the ultimate goal in schooling is to make money by getting students online at home for all their schooling. Call it disruptive education or competency-based or personalized, et cetera. Students go online for the bulk of their instruction, minus teachers—and schools.
The dream is to get rid of those old teachers and bad brick-and-mortar schools.
Ironically, it would seem like parents would want nothing more than to get their kids to limit their use of tech devices. And with all the hype over online instruction, there are two serious problems. One, if students don’t want to log in they don’t have to. Or, they can get someone else to log in for them…what’s called cheating. But that’s another story.
