Response to Heartstrings (Original post)

37. This is very powerful - thanks for posting!

I guess my issue with home schooling is that not so many parents are willing or equipped to do "their share." It depends so much on at least one parent for the system to work. Every parent who slouches or fails, creates even more work for the over-burdened teachers, and how is that fair to the teachers?

Who will teach the teacher's children while she's spending all of her time on our/your kids?

Parents need to step up and take responsibility. Brush up on school lessons, brush up your computer skills if need be. Spend time talking with your kids and understand where they need help. Then find out how you can help them. Parents don't want to do this, but so what? We're all having to do things we don't want to now that Covid is here.

If schools aren't reopening this fall - and it looks like they won't - then coaching programs must be made available for the parents who need guidance in home schooling their kids. That's my two cents.
