背景:新冠肺炎的大流行令美国的高等学 府不得不关闭校园,用远程教育取代面授课程。但网络授课的质量并未得到学生们的认可,数十所大学遭到了学生们的集体诉讼,他们认为学校将疫情的多重压力转嫁到自己身上,并没有交付所承诺的教育水平,要求退还部分学杂费。过去十年间,美国的大学教育费用上涨幅度高达63%,许多学生需要在毕业后工作多年才能还清贷 款。因此学生们认为仅仅为了PPT和网课(许多教授甚至连录播视频都不发,只是简单地布置作业)而负债多年极其不公,学杂费的用途本应不仅包括面授课程,还有对体育馆、图书馆、实验室和其他相关建筑的使用,以及学术讨论和社团活动等重要的社交功能。这些集体诉讼均没有明确的退费金额请求,只是要求退还应交付的教育服务和网课价值之间的差额。可见,两种体验之间有差距是肯定的,但差了多少却很难确定。
