Remote learning is a challenge for many families, especially one group that could potentially fall through the cracks -- the homeless population.
Keisha and her son currently reside in a homeless shelter. She wanted to share her story, but asked for her identity to be kept anonymous.
Keisha's son is one of hundreds in the Hudson Valley who are homeless and facing remote learning in the fall.
She says because of her situation, WI-FI is hard to come by and with schools closed, she is concerned about her son's access to free meals and wraparound services.
School administrators worry more families are becoming homeless amid the pandemic.
Keisha says no one chooses to be in her situation. She says she was actually on her way to independence when COVID-19 hit.
