Boys and Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati steps in to help families juggling work, online learning

CINCINNATI — Many working parents are faced with a seemingly impossible challenge during the COVID-19 pandemic: Working while teaching their children, who are learning online, at the same time. Although parents know how to cope and multitask, it’s just not possible to be in two places at once.

That’s where the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati comes in. The organization has expanded its traditional after-school services to welcome students during the day, too. At the Boys and Girls Club, children have a quiet, safe place to focus on their virtual classes and get help from trained staff members.

“And the reason we’re doing that is to meet the needs of our families,” said Boys and Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati CEO Bill Bresser. “This is the most challenging school year that they’ve probably ever faced.”

Bresser said the organization didn’t plan on the sudden shift but began its

Girls Have Greater Access to Education than Ever, but Equality Is Still a Long Way Off

LONDON—When Adelaide Tsogo Masenya was six, she switched primary schools. Her local school, Dr Knak Primary School, in the poor Johannesburg township of Alexandra, only taught in her native language of Sepedi. Her new school, Marlboro Gardens Secondary School, had an English-only curriculum. Years later when she asked her mother, a cashier who only had a primary school education, why they had moved her, her mother replied, “You actually asked me to take you to an English school.” Even at such a young age, Masenya, who is now 30, had enough agency to understand the importance of education for her future.

Masenya went on to attend university in Johannesburg—later working both in human resources and as a secondary school teacher. She was also awarded a Chevening scholarship to obtain a master’s degree in education and development at University College London, something that likely wouldn’t have been available if she had
