On this episode of COVID and the Classroom, Mary Clare sits down with two incredible moms, Bethany Mandel and Jenny Clark. Bethany is a homeschool mom and Jenny's children are doing pod learning at home and enrolled in Arizona's Empowerment Scholarship program.

We tackle some homeschooling stereotypes. Are homeschooled kids, as they are referred to in the movie Mean Girls, homeschooled jungle freaks? Bethany and Jenny also offer advice for parents looking into homeschooling for the first time due to the pandemic.
