How to Choose a School for Your Kids During this Health Crisis

School is taking a major hit because of the global health crisis. Now more than ever, it’s more challenging for parents to find a school to enroll their kids in. You can’t really visit schools and meet with the administrators right now due to social distancing and quarantine measures.

How are schools coping? Right now, the solution that many schools have taken is learning virtually or through online classrooms. This article highlights several schools around Qatar who are offering remote learning solutions so that students can still continue to learn and make their home isolation days productive.
