ChatGPT — the new chat bot that is set to revolutionize the way we search online — is already making waves beyond the tech world.

Educators and parents are taking notice of the new generative artificial intelligence technology, and wondering what it means for kids in school.

But, there’s a lot of opportunity there as well, according to Jessica Early. Early is an English professor at Arizona State University who studies teaching — and teaching writing, in particular.

Yvonne So is a mother of three and a member of the contribution board for the Arizona Republic. In a recent op ed, she argues that our state lawmakers might do better to pay attention to the threats posed to kids by ChatGPT than drag queens or pronouns.
