OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU) - With some 40 million California students out of the classroom parents suddenly found themselves in the driver's seat of their child's education.
KTVU's Gasia Mikaelian spoke with a group of Oakland parents from Redwood Heights Elementary about the challenges and rewards of distance learning.
Courtney Marshall Turk said, "When I first figured out that we would be home for a long time, I had a breakdown!"
Adding another parent, Trina Villanueva, "I will say when I saw fractions I wanted to throw up because it brought up all these feelings I had about math."
Since those early days of distance learning, things have smoothed out for the group of parents as they have devised new ways to support at-home learning.
