As many of you have probably heard, New York City public schools recently closed. Children who were attending school in person were abruptly switched to remote learning. With less than one day’s notice, families had to resume juggling working, childcare, and schooling. While a small number schools have recently reopened, the vast majority of children will continue remote learning.
The difficulties of remote learning have a higher impact on working class families. That's why we're asking you to step up as a volunteer tutor to help address the inequities in the educational system. With the new school closures, Team AOC has set a goal of serving 1,000 students for the 2020-2021 school year.
