Parents Exploring Home-Schooling During Coronavirus with Learning 'Pods'

Hillsboro, Oregon-based Juliet Travis, who has a 12-year-old son, started planning for the school year when she found out her child’s seventh-grade class would be held remotely in September as a result of coronavirus cases spiking across the country. Her son is hosting socially distant home-schooling "pods" for neighborhood kids with classes like PE and virtual learning during the coronavirus pandemic!
