SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – Colton Holian’s dog didn’t eat his homework, the Wi-Fi did.
“Half of my assignments go but the other half don’t,” says Holian, 13, who has been virtually attending Navajo Nation’s Tohatchi Middle School for the past month. Holian loves school, especially math, and was getting As and Bs last year.
Now his teachers tell his grandmother that he’s getting Cs and Ds. He’s at risk of failing physical education which, like all of his classes, are taught online.
