We are a family that is homeschooling our kids. We are museum members and have attended the homeschool classes, as well as other programs and camps for years now. We also participated in classes at the libraries and nature centers. We had a community garden and meet-ups with friends. All of that was an important part of our homeschooling experience, and now none of that is happening. Most of the programs we relied on for input and interaction have not gone virtual.
My kids participated in the first virtual homeschool class you offered, and they loved it and needed it! It was a rare chance, in these times, for them to interact with teachers and students that they have known in person. I think it may be extra hard on homeschoolers right now because most of the interactive community programs our kids participated in have not gone virtual.
They need more of this. We’d sign up for weekly sessions, if you offered it…
We hope the museum can continue to play an important role in the education of our children. Thank you.
