When Doreen Monroe’s daughter Brooklyn had the opportunity to go back to school last fall, the Passaic, N.J., mom knew it could benefit her child academically and socially.
“She definitely does better as a student in the classroom,” Monroe explains. “She needs the accountability.” Even a hybrid option was better than spending sixth grade at home. Brooklyn went into the classroom on Tuesdays, Thursdays and some Fridays. On other days, she logged into class using Zoom, where her teacher simultaneously taught students in the classroom and those online.
