In response to ‘CT’s plan for reopening schools is a disaster in the making’

I read Paula Matzke’s commentary, “Connecticut’s plan for reopening schools is a disaster in the making,” and was deeply disturbed by her lack of insight. As a mom of three, ages 6 years, 3 years, and 4 months, I have been at the front of the distance learning adventure since our district closed on March 13. I would like to enlighten Matzke as to some of the real life challenges distance learning presents for the youngest learners, kindergarteners.
