After nearly two years of the pandemic, many children are struggling with their education. Teachers are tired, burnt out and overwhelmed. Constantly shifting from in-person learning, to online, then back to in-person, has caused a huge lack of stability in education. As a result, many kids are slipping through the cracks!
Every parent wants what’s best for their child, knowing that their child is falling behind is causing anxiety amongst many parents. We chatted with Linda, a mom of two, about how her kids are doing in school. “Not good.” She said, with worry written all over her face. “I’m worried that they will continue to fall behind and just never catch up. I don’t know what to do!”
Linda, like many parents has been trying to help her kids from home. But, it’s just not working. “I’m not a homeschooling parent. I don’t have that kind of focus.” Linda said with tears in her eyes. “I want to be able to help my kids. But the more I try, the more frustrated we all become. I’m not a math whiz, I can’t help what I don’t understand.”
Michael reflects Linda’s feelings. “My son is in fourth grade, and he can’t read. Just a couple sight words is all he can manage. The school doesn’t seem to see a problem with that, and they just keep pushing him ahead. This whole situation is making me feel like a failure as a parent. I’ve tried so hard to help him read. We went and bought all these sight word cards, and word games.” Michael said. “None of that was working so we signed up for tutoring with a well-known tutoring company. We spent over $500 and it didn’t work. The sessions failed. And he still can’t read.”
How are parents supposed to keep their kids from slipping through the cracks?
Let’s make something clear: None of this is the parent’s fault. Children have not been receiving proper educational instruction. It’s difficult for a teacher to evaluate how a child is doing in an online learning system that isn’t properly set up to be online learning. Online/virtual education can be great tool, when it is set up specifically to be online. But when you take a class of 20+ kids, that are used to being in-person and you put them all online. Learning won’t happen the way it should.
Sure, you will have children that will do just fine and adapt to the abrupt changes without issue or complaint. But, there are many kids who aren’t able to keep up. It’s unfair that the parents should feel guilty and pressured. Additionally, it’s unfair that teacher’s should feel the pressure to constantly switch from one venue of learning to another. There needs to be stability in order for children to have the opportunity to thrive.
The future of education is unknown.
We really don’t know when the pandemic will end, and if education will ever go back to normal. What we do know is that we have to help the kids that are struggling right now. While we love the idea of everyone being able to access the in-home curriculum at home. It’s not realistic!
Parents like Linda and Michael are concerned because the longer the pandemic continues, the older their children become. They continue to miss important lessons and learning opportunities. However, Linda and Michael aren’t the only parents struggling with this fear. Many parents are worried about how to get their kids caught up.
We remain committed to helping children from all educational sectors excel.
While our primary focus has been on the homeschooling curriculum, we see the need to help families from all education sectors. Kids are struggling, and that’s not okay. We at TEAM Schoolio have a window of opportunity to help children catch up and excel in their learning journey. Children’s education has been hugely impacted; the time to change now! We must work fast, as kids are slipping through the cracks of a broken education system way too quickly.
Your child isn’t too far behind, and with the right help and tools, they will catch up in no time. We must stop letting children slip through the cracks of a broken education system. To help, Schoolio Learning has launched an incredible one-on-one tutoring platform for students in grades 1 – 8.
“Schoolio After-School started because customers who are not homeschooling full time, but are using Schoolio as supplemental content for their kids, need help teaching the curriculum.” Sathish Bala, CEO of Schoolio, said. “Not everyone can afford curriculum and tutoring. This is why we set up this amazing platform to bridge the gap. Our tutors are teachers; our books are Canadian curricula. And it’s set up for after-school. Giving parents the freedom they need, from having to worry about homework and catch-up work.”
