Some Brookfield students are back in classroom today as the new school year starts. The Board of Ed and Superintendent has answered a number of questions about how distance learning will work, specifically how teachers will manage parents watching every zoom and scrutinizing the day. Remote learning is now, and for the foreseeable future, a part of education and it's likely unavoidable. School leaders says parents will need to understand that the remote learning option is not "homeschooling" simply with the curriculum being provided by the District. Parents can and should assist, but the teacher must remain the instructional authority and the Board will support teachers and administrators in this way.
