How can we improve Court School Offerings?
As I am supporting the Court schools in Alameda County, I have found that Distance Learning and the offerings associated with it create a huge dilemma for Educators AND Probation. For instance, Google Classroom is meant to expand the possibilities of learning and requires the internet. However, the internet access poses a problem because students are now put in a situation where they have access to information that they are not supposed to. They are very savvy and work around most firewalls.
What would it look like to provide a "shell" of Google classroom or other internet dependent curriculum offerings that only allow for "self-contained" internet content that is ONLY available to teachers and students in court schools.
This is a class of student who has certainly been left out of many of the mainstream conversations, so I am speaking for them. Part of their being in our Juvenile Justice System is a direct correlation to the HUGE gaps in their educational learnings and outcomes in the first place.
Very much open to other ideas and dialogue.
