Gov. Newsom’s “Safe Schools for All” plan offers hope for reopening more schools for in-person instruction, but school districts have to traverse many obstacles to get there, with little time to do it.
This documentary illustrates the education struggles families face and how some students put off the start of their college careers, so they could support their families when the pandemic claimed their parents' jobs.
An EdSource survey of the state’s 58 counties shows most California students are learning online, and many districts that had not reopened for face-to-face instruction are postponing their plans, if only temporarily, during current health crisis.
This map gives a broad indication of the kind of instruction offered by all or most public school districts in a particular county — whether via in-person or distance learning, or a mixture of the two — as of Dec. 16, 2020.
First report cards of this most unusual school year jolted many of the families participating in EdSource’s special project to chronicle how families are coping. For many, lower-than-expected grades just reinforced how much they are struggling with learning from home.
