We have all heard it; “this assignment is due by midnight tonight on eCampus.  No late work will be accepted.”  For most people, this would be no problem; they could just go home, type up the paper on their laptop, and easily turn it in to eCampus before the deadline.  However, what about the kids who have no way of getting to eCampus at home in the first place?

School is already hard, with teachers pressing for everything to be done with upmost perfection, homework being given out left and right, and parent checking skyward and hammering their kids if they have a bad grade.  With the added pressure of navigating eCampus, it’s no wonder high schoolers have so much anxiety.  This anxiety doubles, however, when the students are unable to attempt assignment technology-based at home.  Teachers always say, “go to the library”, or “print it out in the morning at school”.  But, are these suggestions really attainable when that same students probably has 6 other teachers pulling them this way and that way for the same reason?  Sophomore Kayleni Western said, “I think forcing students to use technology to do school assignments at home is unfair and complicated, and people who have access to internet outside of school have an advantage over those who don’t.”

There are some strait A students that work hard and maintain that 4.0 GPA and above, who may be unable to access technology at home.  Don’t ask me how they do it, but these students’ lives would be made 100 times easier if teachers would stop being forced to utilize eCampus and other internet sources of learning.  “I have a feeling some of my teachers would rather not use eCampus if it was their choice,” said sophomore Emily Patel, “it only makes learning that much more complicated both in an out of school, and I can’t imagine not having a computer at home to help me along on homework and assignments.”

It is 2017, and almost everything we do comes directly from online.  We stream videos, music, play apps, go on social media, and all at home.  It is now the norm for everything we do to be computer-based, but not many people pay attention to how this affects the lives of nearly hundreds of kids who may have trouble keeping up in class because of these new trends.  Maybe its time we attempt to put an end to all the computer-based learning before we end up in what is basically full- time virtual school.
