Knowledge, Learning, Community

Nobody's calling it "bait and switch", probably because of the 130 positive coronavirus test results, but it sure looks like it to me. In any even, the outcome was entirely predictable (and, indeed, was predicted!) but UNC decided to invite its students to come and get exposed to Covid-19 before sending them all home. In my view, this was an irresponsible and insensitive decision. Far more damage is being done to the image of the university system that would ever have occurred has they simply employed online learning. If I were a student, I would have heeded the faculty's advice and stayed home.
