After more than a year of hybrid- and remote-learning, students are returning to the classroom this spring. Seemingly overnight, the early-morning hustle is back; youth sports are making their pressing demands on families' schedules; high schoolers are up 'til all hours of the night again doing homework.
Sometimes, when we look back on our own pandemic-school experiences, it doesn't even feel real.
Did our kids really do Zoom school for an entire year?
How the heck did we survive that?
Do we just go back to normal now?
Our colleagues on WBUR's education desk are working on a series about the unexpected ways the pandemic changed learning — and sometimes changed it for the better.
We're eager to hear from parents and caregivers about what the last year has been like for you. Please tell us what you're thinking and feeling by submitting your answers in the Google form below. Don't forget to include your contact information — we'll be following-up with some of you as we produce the web version of this project.
Thank you for sharing your experiences and reflections with us on this most difficult and unusual year.
