Sure, OK.  Whatever works for you.  Why are you asking me?

I still think kids need a lot of social interaction in order to form good social habits and maybe even a moral compass. But, remote learning is a good option/alternative/addition for typical public school environments. I guess it depends on circumstances, how used and who's doing the teaching.

Girls in school also enjoy the heartfelt camaraderie of picking on the new girl until she develops an eating disorder.  You can't get that at home.

Sounds like a valid medical reason to not send the kid to school, or to seek accommodation if she does go back.

Headaches triggered by fluorescent lights are common - is it possible she was exposed to them in her classrooms, but not at home? If so, use the medical diagnosis to request that her classroom's lighting be upgraded to LED (and bonus - the school saves a bit on energy bills to somewhat offset the cost).

That said, since remote seems to work for the kid and there are more issues than migraines to worry about - if you can do full time remote right now, do it, but seek improvements at the school anyway to be ready for a time when she does go back.

Depends on how many kids you have.

This is all new to them. Give them a couple of months to figure it out...

Young girls have shown they can just as easily find a rando on social media and drive them to suicide.

That gives me a business idea.  Imagine if you will a service where you can buy a fake social media profile including pictures, status updates, insta posts, etc. tailored for your daughters prejudices (race, weight, etc.).

All you need to do is say, "Hey, [daughter].  My friend at work has a daughter who is having a hard time making friends, you should friend her on [social media]" and away she goes.  Your daughter then harasses the profile with her fiends and my service updates the profiles to detail the slow spiral and end it all with a frantic post from the fake profile's "mother".

"Unfriending" not as satisfying as shunning them in person?
