Reporters Gillian Flaccus, Portland, Oregon, and Jocelyn Gecker, San Francisco, produced the most-engaged enterprise story of the week, looking at how families are dealing with schooling from home – or in some cases, giving up. AP got into families’ homes to tell emotional stories of parents trying to work full-time and helping their kids with online classes while worrying about the future implications.

Kindergartener Henry Martinsen makes food in Quincy, Mass., March 22, 2020, in a photo provided by his family. “We tried to make (home schooling) work the first week.
