The coronavirus childcare crisis is having a devastating impact on working moms

Tuesday, September 15th

Kids are going back to school, but for most students that includes at least some amount of at-home or virtual learning as the pandemic continues. And if a young child is learning from home, that means a parent or somebody has to be home to help them. In a lot of families, this puts a tremendous amount of strain on the status quo, and sometimes one of the parents even has to quit their job to take care of the kids at home. In most cases, it's the mother who ends up dropping out of the workforce. Dr. Karen Aronian, principal of Aronian Education Design LLC and education policy fellow with Columbia University joins KYW In Depth to break down the ripple effects the coronavirus pandemic is having on working families and the effects a workforce exodus like this will generate long after 2020 is over.
