Forty-four states so far have extended their statewide school closures through the remainder of the school year. What used to be a three-month summer learning loss, which was always an issue, is now going to be a five- or six-month summer learning loss. Now that kids can't attend class in person, many parents are overwhelmed and seeking out online resources, apps and games to keep their kids' minds engaged at home.
When the closures began, Kahn Academy knew families would need guidance. They have designed daily homeschooling schedules that are a blend of online learning, offline reading, personal writing, and breaks for food and exercise. As a nonprofit with the mission to provide a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere, they have seen a soaring demand for their resources.
