"Learning pods — also called “pandemic pods,” or micro-schools — are small groups of students (typically 3 to 10 children) who learn together outside the typical classroom structure." NY Times
Many families continue to wrestle with questions about safety, money, and politics. Others fear that remote learning will be inadequate, isolating, and doesn't provide the supervision many working parents need. Desperate for a better solution, parents and organizations around the country, like Kaleidoscope, have begun creating “pandemic pods,” or home schooling pods.
These pods provide families with a much needed break and academic support while also providing a schooling option that feels safe and allows kids to have fun as they build social skills!
