Homeschooling as Consequence of COVID-19, No Government Involved in Child Restrictive Education

The NYC public education system has revamped its entire way of teaching our children, with the parents being in control, teachers now having the freedom to teach, and children learning at their own pace with no standardized testing. I know it’s a HUGE struggle; suddenly being thrown into routine change and working parents have to adjust more. But let’s focus on the benefits instead of the negatives. My child has had zero meltdowns, no bullying issues, more freedom to move around, more exercise, & learning what she wants to learn with a dedicated home teacher giving 1:1 lesson instruction. What are some of the positive changes in your child you have seen?
