To try and manage the rising cases of Covid-19 cases across Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon is setting out where local authorities will be placed under the new five tier system. I shared my thoughts with the Daily Record on how this will affect working parents, alongside some research conducted by the Theta Global Advisors team. It indicates that over half of Scots think parents have been the worst affected by Covid-19, and a quarter feel as if their jobs would be at risk if schools were to close again.
“Thousands of parents found themselves in a situation of having to try and teach their kids while juggling working from home to help them catch-up on school work and lost hours in the classroom. This period has been incredibly disruptive to parents and children alike and employers need to recognise that working guardians are being stretched further and thinner than ever before.”
