Parents’ Perspectives on Learning from Home during the COVID-19 Crisis

As an organisation whose work with schools involved significant field work, we realised that it could be a long time before schools can be physical learning spaces again. One of our central concerns has thus become: how can we help students learn and stay engaged during this crisis? 

In answering this question, we realised that we needed to understand parents’ fears, opinions, and hopes before we could design learn-from-home programs that would address the real challenges facing these students and their families. This report is our initial attempt to understand the opinions and attitudes of 60 parents regarding learning from home in the time of the coronavirus pandemic.
