Hi everyone. I just got this email from an acquaintance who works for Khan Academy, with details on their new resources for homeschooling. Lots of great tools here that I think we can all use. Khan Academy is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation, funded almost entirely by donations. I'll add this to our list of resources.

In the past few days, it has become clear that Khan Academy (where I work) -- an educational nonprofit with free, interactive learning materials for students and free tools for teachers and parents -- is uniquely positioned to play an essential role in supporting the continuation of learning at home. We just released some resources that will be invaluable for the nearly 50 million students in America whose schools are closing this week:

Please forward to whoever might find this valuable.
Khan Academy is a 501c3 nonprofit with a mission to provide a free world-class education for anyone, anywhere.
