Join us on Thursday, April 23, at 5 p.m. Central Time, for our inaugural Zoom web chat, #PostCovEd: How the Pandemic Is Changing Schooling Now and for the Future.
In March, the coronavirus hit our city and took all Chicagoans, our health and our economy, by storm. As the number of sicknesses began to rise, our elected officials made the brave and right move to close our schools and cancel in-person classes. We all thought it would be for just a few weeks. But now, there is no end…
For parents who were not planning to join the homeschooling community this year, the struggle is real. But support is out there, you can do this, and your kids might even be better educated as a result.
While many Chicago families struggle to meet basic needs like food and diapers, they also need help with tech access and guidance to support their children’s learning.
Here’s How Friends of the Children-Chicago Is Staying Connected With Kids and Families To Support Their Well-Being
Friends of the Children Chicago shows us how to maintain relationships remotely and balance learning, while helping families deal with trauma and meet their basic needs.
Starting April 13, Chicago Public Schools will provide remote learning while schools remain closed due to the viral pandemic. Their plans for remote learning sound very reasonable given the huge challenges ahead.
Unschooling offers Tiana Kubik’s family a chance to stay connected while learning. “It’s about creating a culture in our home that allows us all to thrive and learn together.”
