Pro – Online schooling offers options, flexibility

Disclaimer: Given the current global Covid-19 pandemic, we understand that all SASD families had a terribly difficult decision to make last August. Parents had to choose between sending their children to buildings for face-to-face learning or enrolling their children in the Souderton Area Online Academy. While The Arrowhead’s Pro/Con is typically a friendly duel over a two-sided subject, this issue’s Pro/Con will be a little different. We will not be focusing on which type of learning environment is a better option; rather, we will be exploring the value of both educational environments.
