Learning Pods - Are They The Future Of Education?
I don't have children, and the ones in my immediate tribe are all grown but I've been seeing the discussion on the subject of small groups of students, taught online but with a in group educator, what's being called "Learning Pods" because several of my friends are teachers. If you didn't catch it, our governor in Missouri is a complete idiot, and many teacher, including my friends are not going back to schools this Fall. They are looking at Learning Pods as a way to use their training and still make money in a safe manner.
Yet, learning pods are something which takes resources to set up, and resources are something low income families don't have. This is certainly going to increase educational inequality by income. Rich families will be able to educate their children, who will go on to get good paying jobs, while poor families will have children whose economic pathways will get smaller and smaller.
Not a good thing for a functional society.
For writers this is one more thing to toss into your Post Oil stories though.
