Parents are scrambling and in some cases, panicking, over how they are going to manage this upcoming school year. As more and more schools opt to continue distance learning, parents and caregivers are left to figure how they are going to manage life with school-aged children in the age of COVID-19
Yes Every Kid was founded on the belief that “there are no average kids” and “it’s time we build a revolutionary new education system. One that’s as diverse as the kids it’s designed to serve.” They recently penned a letter to Congress in support of funding students and families instead of institutions.
I had the opportunity to talk on my Liberty Through Learning broadcast with Matt Frendeway, one of the people who helped to draft the letter and build the coalition of signatories. During our conversation we talk about why the current education emergency demands a paradigm shift in how we fund education; we also talked about the systemic injustice baked into residential school assignment. I hope you’ll watch and let us know your thoughts.
