Before the pandemic, Karen Mozian had a concrete vision of her son’s K-12 education: He would go to public school, just as she had.
But then schools shut down in March 2020, and Mozian saw 9-year-old Elijah glued to Zoom at the kitchen table, struggling to get his words out. Elijah stutters, and distance learning made it worse. He was barely engaging, daydreaming through his classes.
Elijah was diagnosed with ADHD in the summer of 2021, just before sixth grade. He was back on campus, and his school granted him accommodations, such as additional testing times and help with incomplete assignments, but Mozian noticed that he was expected to advocate for himself — and he didn’t want to be singled out. His grades dropped abruptly.

Listening to the local am news station while reloading Thursday [1-20] report that 35000 school age children are missing from school roles in Colorado. Comment from local district tried to play it off as parents moving out of state. FYI The local real estate market in Southern Colorado is on fire with all the people moving here.ReplyDelete
Didn't know that.Delete

I guess that means that are getting educated at home?
The hope is they are homeschooling. I believe CO is like that. Here in TN, its similar. Many families started home schooling during, and after seeing all the wacky shit they're getting indoctrinated with, are staying that way! More fracturimg of the nation.ReplyDelete
