Another gem from Gordon Gee.

I can't disagree with Gordon Gee about athletics and opening up colleges. Children, especially K-12 need to be in school. We babysit granddaughters one day per week. Fortunately their parents are both working. The oldest granddaughter in K5 has a great teacher who sends home daily worksheets in math, reading and writing, and many days has a recorded video.
I am amazed at how well she reads, writes and does math at her age. I do worksheets for at least one day and sometimes 2 days with her on babysitting day. It is fun to be a K5 perfesser after so many years teaching professional students.
However, I am troubled that there are probably many children who are not getting much help or no help at all. Children need to be in school.
I have also heard the community is looking into starting up children's sports such as T-ball and soccer this summer. School and sports are important for children to develop.
I believe most college students prefer learning in class. Many college students include intramural sports participation and going to the gym on their own. Hopefully developing the mind, body and spirit will return with the typical opportunities.
