Parents considering ‘Learning Pods’ over sending children back to school.

Elizabeth Mah, a lawyer, is among many Canadian parents taking their children’s education into their own hands this new school year. As a parent, Mah is concerned about her two daughters being able to follow COVID-19 guidelines in their classrooms, so she joined a trio of like-minded families to form an education pod for the new school year. 

 

Mah said, “Each parent would take the majority of the responsibility of teaching their own kid most of the time. And then we’d probably set a couple of dedicated days where we would meet up and do some activities together.”
