Low income community networks provide informal learning support

The Vallejo Times Herald (California) describes some of the informal networking emerging among low income parents navigating remote learning without the private tutors and learning pods that higher-income families can afford. The article describes how nonprofit parent organizations and parent leaders teach other parents how to use technology, access household resources, translate school communications, and support each other’s mental health. Strategies like trading child care with neighbors are not new to low income families’ survival, but are newly imperative in the pandemic context. #covid-19 #education #mentalhealth
