People ‘still wary about full-on school.’ In-class, online mix most popular back-to-school option
A majority of Ontarians support a mix of online and in-class schooling for kids this fall — but feel strongly that teachers must use live video-conferencing when students are learning from home, says a new poll.
The Campaign Research survey, conducted for the Star, also found that 71 per cent of respondents think educators should be mandated to use livestreaming if online learning continues, with the highest level of support in the Halton and Peel Regions.
