Right now, parents have an agonizing choice, if they have a choice at all - send their kids back to school during a time of vast uncertainty or keep them home in continued isolation and at the expense of their professional productivity.
And let's be honest, mental health. 

Of course these are the parents who actually enjoy the privilege of a choice. Essential workers, frontline caregivers and those who can least afford this crisis have very few choices.

Many parents are scrambling to create microschools. 

The Atlanta Coworking Alliance is inviting churches and other public spaces to fling open their doors during the work week. 

Our collaboration seeks to provide child care solutions for parents. Churches are currently doing what they have always done: preparing to welcome any and all children every week. They have the classrooms, the insurance, the staff, and wide-open space to spread out.

Church classrooms could be set up for 4 - 6 children with a "proctor" to supervise their independent online lessons, mask compliance and physical distancing. After awhile, they all go outside for some fresh air and a healthy snack. 

Meanwhile, mom and dad are working away in another part of the church campus or at the partner coworking space. 

The first step in this process is to gauge the amount of interest. PLEASE complete the survey here no later than Wednesday, July 29th. 

Note: This concept was developed by Daryn DeZengotita of Table Coworking. You can reach more about her thoughts on this topic here.
