To kickoff 2022, many colleges and universities nationwide announced the move back to remote learning this month, with many also imposing Covid booster mandates and other heavy-handed restrictions.
Campus Reform’s Addison Smith travelled to Maryland and D.C. to ask students about the school closures and what the potential downsides accompany it.
Many students were heavily critical of the transition back to online, with one George Washington University telling Smith, “I definitely think with the vaccine requirement and the booster requirement and the mask mandate, that they should definitely be staying open.”
Others detailed the problems that come with remote learning.
“We’re getting our master’s right now with speech pathology, so we need to like, get more hands-on experience,” one said.
“It’s just very hard to learn when you’re just laying in your room… There’s no engagement,” another expressed, with many other citing similar sentiments.
Why aren’t schools address these concerns more? It seems like liberal schools are more obsessed with shots and lockdowns than the lives of the students they are supposed to be serving.
Plus, the schools certainly aren’t giving discounts for remote learning and lockdowns in most cases. If colleges had to give some accountability or face losing massive funding over the changes, you might see some different priorities.
