LAUSD begins in mid August. What that will look like remains unclear. Meanwhile, results are now available on how distance learning has gone so far. “Distance learning got really low marks from school districts throughout the country,” says national education reporter Tawnell Hobbs. 

She says the issues were mainly about students not being able to get online and/or not having devices to learn at home. She adds that teachers weren’t trained on how to teach remotely, and some parents couldn’t homeschool their kids because they had work or were too overwhelmed.
