I would like everyone's honest opinions. I am doing this for research so I would not be opposed to you saying if you are a student, parent, teacher, etc. I am not on either side but as a student I think virtual school would be fun if there are still hands on activities. I am not saying what my teacher(s) tell me to, but as my own person curious about what people think. Just to be clear I am not yes or no to this subject but in between.

I do not think that fully virtual education will work. It can supplement the standard education but it should not replace it. They're many advantages that standard education has. When you have a teacher, you can ask for help more easily. Just raise your hand and go. This is more complicated in a virtual system. You also do not have the same relationship as a normal student and teacher. Virtual education does have it's advantages such as less resources required on paper and the ease of access. I think it is best if we use virtual education together with standard education to have the best of both worlds and nullify the disadvantages of both.
