Letter to the editor: Chance to change

Posted
 
Regarding Mr. Alcorn’s previous article about the oportunity for schools to change during this period of disrupiton: Schools do need to change for the 21 century. One part that has nothing to do with academics is to acknowledge that schools provide child care for working parents. When this is disrupted, there’s no fallback. 
Much like health insurance being tied to employers, child care is tied to schools. Is this wise? Now that we’ve been confronted with a virus that sends children home to learn online, who’s watching the kids? What are parents to do if they’re lucky enough to have a job where they must go outside their home to work?
Let’s change this connection.
