I think things will change with schools, especially for older children, having proper online coursework and zoom things if needed and so on. Something good has to come out of all this, especially with the upcoming recession and back to austerity!I was thinking at how much easier this would have been to dealt with when I was a child, as mine and most of my friends mum's did not work or didn't need to.
It does seem to me that the current need for both parents to work is the driving force behind getting the schools fully reopened, therefore putting the children, teachers and support staff at risk solely for economic reasons, also confirmed to me by the wealthy private schools not yet screaming to return.
It also seems incredible to me that decent home tutoring is not possible in a time when so many can work from home, free laptops with free internet and a decent online course should be possible.
The media is now in full swing against the teachers & their unions, so I have no doubt that all of the children will be back soon...It won't be that long before the media will be telling us all how the lazy NHS now has a 10 million long waiting list, the Sun will probably campaign for a boo on Thursday's day
However I have to say working from home is now the norm for me and I'm really enjoying it and a lot less stressed but....working full time from home (as is my wife) and home schooling is one of the most difficult and stressful things I've ever done. Think it has definitely opened my eyes but also made me grow as a person, even life changing.
