What's wrong with online remote learning anyway if it is set up well? Adapt

Remote places in Australia have been doing it for generations (School of the Air), with educational outcomes as good or better than in-class lessons

There is really nothing wrong with it.  The problem is that the US is so far behind the tech curve when it comes to schools that its not even funny.  I have taught online software development course for over 6 years and the tech now is so good you can pretty much simulated a live classroom.  The problem is that the US spends the majority of its budget on its military and basically nothing compared to other nations on their education system.  Hell, most teachers have to use their own money to purchase supplies for their classrooms for user outside tools for homework and other stuff because the schools are so underfunded.
