Dr. Kakar mentions schools and on-line schooling, but failed to mention home schooling. A valuable option that many people overlook. Home education bypasses the whole spreading diseases, COVID or otherwise. Numerous studies have shown that the higher the parent involvement, the better the student learns. And the education is totally customized to how the child learns and their interests and motivation.

Hi, @rambler, A close friend of my daughter's has home schooled her five children from the get go. How she manages to keep them clothed and fed and herself sane with these close in age young ones is beyond me. However, her oldest completed high school and is on an academic scholarship to our largest state university. As a long time educator, I am impressed by her and others who take on the home schooling so effectively. Certainly more than one way to skin a cat but it would take enormous dedication on the part of the parent presenting daily age appropriate curriculum and I so concur that regardless of what schooling options choosen, parents who are more involved with their children's learning make a wonderful difference in their educational outcomes.
