As schools open their doors across California, life remains far from normal for families participating in EdSource's families project. Some families are opting to remain in distance learning, while in Lucerne Valley, students embrace attending five days a week.
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.
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.
Families across California face a school year like no other as they confront a deadly pandemic that has upended the traditions of going back to school. Come along as EdSource reports how families are learning how to cope.
This video, “Education during Covid: California families struggle to learn,” is part of a continuing project by EdSource on how California families are struggling with learning during the Covid crisis. It includes photos and videos contributed by participating families.
