Safe Spaces Become Learning Spaces for Children Fleeing Violence in Ohio

Ohio News Connection – CityBeat |

Families and educators in Ohio aren’t the only ones coping with back-to-school challenges during a pandemic. Domestic violence shelters also are working tirelessly to turn safe spaces into learning spaces.

To accommodate learning, some shelters are converting living areas into classroom spaces; others are changing mealtimes to match school schedules. Many work with local districts to bring in tutors, and have hired a new staff member with educational experience to work with kids.
