Is everyone else having the same experience that schooling at home during the school closure is a mess.
From what I saw and heard last year, in other countries kids would have online classes with their teacher, but our children’s school isn’t doing that and only giving a few 10 minute videos a day and a large amount of homework sheets which as I work, my wife has to push my son to do.
I feel they are pushing most of the teaching responsibility onto the parents. From what I understand they still have to work, but it feels like they are not doing a lot.
This is difficult as I need to work from home, my wife needs to keep our younger two kids occupied (my daughter in kindergarten doesn’t get any work from the school at all) and also teach my son all the homework posted online by the school. (as they have due dates and must be delivered to the school in person…).
I have been taking 2 - 3 days off work each week in order to help (luckily my employer has a special leave policy for caring for children during COVID-19) but I still have work to complete at work so it is up to me to balance the days off with still being productive.
Is this the same for all schools or is our school just a mess?
