How to educate during pandemic? CA parents use microschools & pandemic pods

Parents hit back  against CA Gavin Newsom’s  government school shutdowns and teacher unions muscle tactics against private schools and charter schools   by choosing new ways to educate their children.

Recently Gavin Newsom threatens parents with penalties for hiring tutors. The law, passed in January 2020, AB-5,  imposes stiff penalties for not hiring tutors as employees.

 

Remember the little red school house, a dozen or so kids and one teacher? Back it comes!.

The micro-school is a 21st century version of the one room school house in which a small number of students of varying ages learn together.   Parents pool their resources to hire an instructor.

Another new way to educate is for several parents to  take turns teaching their  children.  The “Pandemic Pods” Main  Facebook group already has roughly  38,000 members and has spawned dozens of official local chapters plus more independent groups.   There’s a Special Ed Pod that started July 2020 and has 545 members.
