Knowledge, Learning, Community

I guess this is a dream scenario for a certain set of people:

  • Remote learning is here to stay
  • School choice and vouchers will blossom
  • Homeschooling will mushroom
  • Sport will uncouple from schools
  • Teachers unions will shrink
  • Public-private partnerships will flourish
  • Mass customization of schooling will be the norm

I can't imagine how to imagine that American education system could be improved by making it more like the American health care system, but I suppose there is no shortage of people who expect that the current pandemic will make it so, even at a time when we should be drawing exactly the opposite lesson.
