As many schools across the country remain closed, parents are banding together to form “education pods,” pooling resources, grouping their children in co-quarantined clusters, and hiring a teacher or private tutor for instruction. It is a real-time, large scale example of civil society in action; what Edmund Burke called the “little platoons” that make America an exceptional nation. How do these education pods work for students, and how might they benefit teachers and families? How do you form an education pod of your own?
Join us for a discussion on how to build your own education pod with policy experts and parents who have created successful pods and microschools.
