“We decided to homeschool this year because my children and myself have asthma, and my mother is immune suppressed. We do not want to bring COVID into our home. 

“I considered homeschooling in the past when the school denied me help with my son. That’s one of my concerns. That I will not have the resources to teach my child with learning disabilities.

“To make this change, we are having to cut back on things we enjoy on the weekends to pay for homeschooling. But in the end, I just want my children to be safe and healthy and to learn at the appropriate grade level.”
