The longer schools stay closed, the more I wonder if all curricula will have to be revised to take into account the fact that a lot of students across the country are missing out on, what, a quarter of their school year? Does every teacher from college down have to adjust their expectations for an entire generation of students are a few months behind, or a few months father behind, anyway?

Some counties are moving stuff online at the high school level, at least, from what I hear. Our county almost certainly won't be, and I think, depending on how long this lasts, there's a real conversation we should have about how this pandemic will exacerbate existing inequalities in education (e.g., I would assume richer counties will be much better able to serve their students online, whereas poorer counties will have a lot of kids who might not even have the hardware and internet access sufficient to pull that off).
