While classrooms will be in use for many years to come, their value will diminish quickly as the online options become more pervasive.

The real classroom of the future will take place inside the mind of the student, wherever they happen to be.
I'd spent seven years in an all-boys school: 2,000 adolescents in the same khaki uniforms striking hunting poses, stalking lunchrooms, classrooms, changing rooms, looking for boys who didn't fit in.
In science, 'fact' can only mean 'confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent.' I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.
Stephen Jay Gould

Flipping our classrooms into active learning spaces really is important and having these convenient spaces where people feel comfortable.
Texas Republican political leaders take perverse pride in how deeply they have cut our state's education budget. Thousands of teachers have been pulled from classrooms, schools have closed and valuable programs have been canceled. In many places, districts are forced to choose between prekindergarten programs and English, algebra and art.
I have been in more classrooms than any legislator will ever walk into in their lives, and I see wonderful, caring, dedicated teaching out there.
I consider the world, this Earth, to be like a school, and our life the classrooms.
It is one thing to open the schools to all children regardless of race. It is another to train the teachers, to build the classrooms, and to attempt to eliminate the effects of past educational deficiencies. It is still another to find ways to feed the incentive to learn and keep children in school.
I've had experiences on both sides of the ocean and various classrooms and bedrooms around New York.
I've never been pigeonholed and I've experienced so many different kinds of skin - what man will do and won't do, what you should do and shouldn't do.

We owe it to our children to equip them with all the capabilities they'll need to thrive in the limitless world beyond the classrooms.
