We spoke with Classical Conversations CEO Robert Bortins about the challenges facing parents who have unwittingly become homeschooling parents this week thanks to quarantines due to the Coronavirus pandemic currently sweeping the globe.

Bortins, whose company offers local homeschooling families support, said that this situation is so unique it’s thrown homeschoolers for a loop as well.

Bortins explained that homeschooling doesn’t usually only take place inside the home and is often quite the opposite—home education is about getting your kids out and about and letting them grow in ways not normally associated with the classroom.

That said, there were several practical tips Bortins offered to parents finding themselves in a situation they find themselves in—many having to work and teach at the same time.

A great conversation that, hopefully, helps parents feel less overwhelmed and more excited about getting to spend more time with their children during home education.
