Kindergartener Henry Martinsen makes food in Quincy, Mass., March 22, 2020, in a photo provided by his family. “We tried to make (home schooling) work the first week. We put together a schedule, and what we found is that forcing a child who is that young into a fake teaching situation is really, really hard,” said his mother, Alexandra Nicholson. “I’d rather have him watch classic Godzilla movies and play in the yard and pretend to be a Jedi rather than figure out basic math.” – Alexandra Nicholson via AP
