Zoom Gets Zapped By The DOE
Many high school teachers uses Zoom to connect with their classroom students. They use zoom for it's simplicity and the ease of use for all involved. Moreover, Zoom can be connected by cellphone as well. However, the DOE zapped Zoom because it claims that it violates student and teacher privacy issues and can be hacked. This is the very same DOE who saw no problem to give charter schools and outside data gathering organizations student personal data without parent approval, so they can use that information to their advantage.
The DOE needs to make things more difficult for both students and teachers rather then come up with a simplified plan to make remote learning easier.
