The Little School That Kept Students Healthy


Education is a real challenge right now. Even schools that brought some students back into classrooms have been forced to send them home as outbreaks of COVID-19 made gathering in groups risky.

The Siskiyou School in Ashland, a Waldorf-style school, has been offering in-person instruction with small groups of students, and it's been working so far.

Administrator Aurilia McNamara, Business Manager Cynthia Bower and first-grade teacher Molly McKissick visit to describe the approach at the school.
