The Education Exchange: From “Innovative” to “Rotten”—Online Learning Amid Covid-19
"What I've heard from a lot of homeschooling families is the moment you leave traditional school, you realize how much time is wasted."
A co-founder of and a distinguished fellow at the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, Michael Horn, joins Paul E. Peterson to survey how schools and families are adapting to online education. They also explore what innovations might be on the horizon amid coronavirus-related school-building closures.
“It feels like an eternity,” Horn, an executive editor of Education Next, observes, noting, “You see an unbelievable amount of variation in the response, and in some cases some really innovative approaches by teachers on the ground and in some cases some really rotten reactions from the folks in the state or district leadership.”
