It is September and families are schooling their children from home. All kinds of arrangements have been made. Perhaps your child is spending time in a learning pod. Maybe you’ve arranged with family or neighbors for a group of children to safely do their schoolwork with one adult supporting the learners. Maybe your child is home by your side, while you do your work and run your household.
The responsibility for learning is now more than ever a partnership between school and home. We know parents are a child’s first teachers. Now parents are also responsible for building strong bridges between remote instruction and educational expectations, navigating schoolwork on the computer and supporting the learning of their children.
