Many students rely on in-class learning styles, and with the implementation of online learning, their education could hinder significantly.
Students rely on the in-person interaction between student and professor, being able to ask questions, and not have to deal with technological interferences that they may face with online classes.
Though adults over the age of 50 are at higher risk than students, there are precautionary measures that can help reduce the risk of spreading the virus among colleges and universities to keep both students and staff safe. Keeping a six-foot distance between each student and teacher, wearing face coverings at all times, and maintaining healthy hygiene are all steps to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.
Students and staff should all return to school for in-class learning, especially in areas where the risk of contracting COVID-19 is significantly lower.
