the article implies that only at times like now are the parents responsible for the result of their child’s education. this is false. parents always have the largest impact on the turnout of their child; not the school

FYI NYC public schools stopped using Zoom as it is not a safe platform-people can get into your meetings. They are using Google Meet.

You just have to use a ‘waiting room’ to ensure that only actual students and no random people can get in the class.

Would love to see other schedules
I have a feeling that this level of learning for this grade is way below what they are used to!

Are human beings and this is an unrealistic expectation unnecessarily being hoisted on them. Parents should try their best but not everyone can or should manage…. this could actually be harmful.

We’ve been managing until now because everyone only had an hour a day. We can’t be the only family that doesn’t have one device per child, can we? How are we supposed to manage this?

Try this:

-NYC is helping people get access to devices: https://coronavirus.schools.nyc/remotelearningdevices

-also perhaps contact the school, they might have extra laptops/ipads. You can also ask around to see if people have extra old phones or tablets.

Nyc is giving free tablets to their students Pre k and up. Does that include private schools that get city-state funding?
