I love this post that I stumbled across pointing out the fact that this coronavirus distance/online/homeschooling hybrid we have going on right now is not homeschooling.
Now I have never homeschooled.
But “homeschooling” vs “what everyone is doing under coronavirus” should not be confused:
Such homeschooling! No homeschooler I know would voluntarily sign up for a homeschool devoid of libraries, parks, friend meetups, rousing trips to the coffee shop and long days at the museum.
Not to mention we’re all walking around like pale atlases, trying to hold up under the relentlessly grim news.
This isn’t homeschooling; this is HARD.
Let’s get that straight now, before we spend the next eight weeks doing it.
