Even after COVID-19, distance learning has unprecedented advantages. Kids with rare, special needs can be matched with qualified educators anywhere in the country. Kids with behavior problems who need to be kept physically separate from other students can still continue their education. School districts with teacher shortages can outsource from areas with teacher surpluses. This can make it easier for schools to find teachers and easier for teachers to find jobs.
Distance learning isn't even all that new. For almost two decades, soldiers have been earning college degrees while deployed abroad in Iraq and Afghanistan. When the President dismisses distance learning as worthless, he is saying that these degrees that these brave men and women have earned are worthless.
