Pros and Cons of Online Schooling

Online schooling came about during March of 2020 when the world pandemic Covid-19 approached. This was and still is a scary time for everyone. We started online school to keep safe but there are some pros and cons of online schooling. 

Some pros of online schooling is that first, we all get to stay safe, and we get to stay socially distanced. As you can tell, there aren’t a lot of pros to a global pandemic. 

There are a lot of cons to online schooling, the first being that we can’t see our teachers face-to-face, which makes it really hard to learn for some students. I personally struggle online learning. Another con is that teens and children are becoming more socially vulnerable; not having the proper social interaction is making us more awkward and making it harder for us to learn our communication skills.

Even though there are more cons than pros, all that matters in the end is that we are staying safe and healthy. What pros and cons do you see? Leave in the comments below!
