In this incredible and historic time, we are seeing schools shuttered and parents overwhelmed by the prospect of maintaining the quality and consistency of their children’s education. Should families feel pressured to keep up, or even surpass, the rate of academic progress of their traditional school? Will children fall behind academically? How do you balance being your child's teacher and parent at the same time? How much homeschooling should be done per day?
At Housman Institute, we believe our role is to nurture the social, emotional, and cognitive well-being of all students and educators without bias. It is critical that every child feel recognized and validated from their earliest days—to understand that their voice matters, regardless of background or experience and is being heard. We listen to, respect and support the needs of our educators as we recognize their critical role in a child's emotional growth and development. Together we need to begin the important work to help all our children and educators, as we move toward a more equitable environment for early learning, setting the stage for the building blocks of empathy and conflict resolution, and a more equitable future for us all.
