Out of Office #5: Navigating Homeschooling
For people with children, the recent events have thrown curveballs when it comes to ensuring quality education. Homeschooling isn't something everyone is familiar with so we spoke with two Workplace One members to help us navigate the existing school curriculum and explore some great resources to help approach it.
