Thank you Edgar, ours will be home even if it's through next year!
It is great that you can do this - what do we do with the children that not in a position to be home schooled? Those that do not have computers; those that do have a parent that can do this?
Either side sounds rosy if you play it right and have the right circumstances.
For the average family - home schooling as a result of this covid - did not work.
I am fortunate and you are fortunate - you can home school; I have a school my child can go to that is in a position they can do this much more easily than the typical public school. Even in the virtual learning my daughter's school arranged for families that either did not have a computer or enough for all their children to borrow one from the school. We were told specifically by my daughter's therapist that this school provided the best virtual service of any other school see had experienced.
But what about the other kids - those that need to be in school the most - they are going to fall behind, they are going to miss the structure, education and other resources being in a school can provide.
Simply making a blanket statement and insinuating that those that can have their children home school care more about their child's overall health is kind of uppity. It is easy to say - not so easy when you think of all the consequences.

Well good for you - you have the resources to help your children. It is not that these parents do not care about their children - it is what is best for their overall health - which includes mental health.
here is a great News release - that includes collaboration between Pediatricians, Educators and Superintendents:
