Sal Khan’s latest project is called Schoolhouse World – basically a platform for tutoring. This guy never rests, does he?

With students wrestling with screen time, and feeling disengaged though they’ve never been so ‘connected.’

It’s really unfortunate. Many distance learning platforms are not designed for parents, but Mom and Dad have become the de facto tech support team in the home, while balancing a noisy, work-from-home lifestyle.
