Serge Avery – Risks of Remote Learning vs. The Classroom
Jeremy has a conversation with Serge Avery, historian and teacher for over 20 years at the largest high school in the United States, Brooklyn Tech in New York City. The 2020 fall school start is fraught with challenges which they discuss at length. Both in person and remote learning pose physical and mental health risks for students, teachers and parents.
As a historian and social studies teacher, Serge also shares what we know from looking to past plagues and epidemics about how our behavior and development are influenced by times like these, and how societies have changed as a result.
