Letter: Pandemic requires rethinking education

I fully agree with Weston Auburn of Flossmoor, whose recent letter presented a realistic and responsible risk assessment of a hasty return to in-person learning. In his letter, Mr. Auburn admirably implores the District 161 School Board “…to start seriously thinking about how they can improve the children’s remote learning.”

Is this not the time to scrap the standardized test obsession, table the textbooks [that were not designed for the remote setting] and empower teachers to employ their own creative ways, as professional educators who have been rigorously toiling in . . .
