With the beginning of the fall semester being a little less than a week away, people are beginning to come to grips with the fact that the old school they knew is giving way to the new school that they now know. This new school only meets for a couple of days a week, if at all. Most of the instruction is taking place online while parents provide the bulk of academic support. The transition is happening so fast that a growing number of families are choosing not to send their children back to school at all.
