I wish there was a simple answer. But in short, I would say no.

My 10-year old has been doing just fine with at home learning.  But it isn't the same for all kids even at the same intellectual level.  We've been lucky that we have a good "social bubble" family that has two kids, one of the being my son's friend.  I know it would be more difficult if we didn't have that going on (but not the end of the world).

The situation described sucks but the good move is to keep your kid at home - it's going to be extra effort for sure.

I'm booking an eye appointment. I read that as

I'm a single mother whose 10 year-old can go back to in-prison learning this Spring

In other news, NO. Keep your kid at home.

It's tough to weigh the benefits of a few months of virtual learning hassle vs your mother's life.

But be sure to consider the value of future babysitting into your calculation.

"Wow, thanks Crusher."

"You're welcome, Billy. Let's go make some license plates."

"Yay, I love crafts."

Well maybe she wants to kill her mother, in that case I say YES.

People that ask stupid questions like this have no business procreating

Well as someone who had their kid home the two weeks before new years and the two weeks after, only to have it last four days in person before the class went into quarantine... Good luck with that decision

Keep the kid at home
About 2-3 weeks in they will be back to online classes

If your mom dies of covid you doubly ease your burden so I say go for it. Hehe

In reality, keep your disease vector at home. Even if they fall behind academically it isn't a big deal this year, as half the farking country is in the same position.

I don't understand these people who can't/don't want to keep their children safe and healthy this year. I've spent the past 9 months at home homeschooling my 14yo child with autism and my 11yo niece who has severe emotional and behavioral problems. And I've done it mostly on my own as my husband is always TDY.

Just think, her burden will be even further eased when the mother has passed away.
