The COVID-19 COMPAS Program presents "Who’s Watching the Kids? School and Family in the Age of Zoom"
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the closure of many childcare facilities, a broad shift toward online learning, and widespread cancellation of extracurricular programs and activities. What effect have these policies had on young people and their families? What can we do to mitigate the harms that are done? How should we balance public health considerations against developmental, educational, and social needs?
