Kansas City, MO - People across the country are getting creative with their children's education during the pandemic.  

Many parents are creating 'learning pods' within their family, social circles and quarantine bubbles - hiring teachers and tutors to instruct and guide small groups of children with their online schooling. 

But there is concern that as more well-off parents form these 'pods', a learning gap could form for those who can't afford the extra tutoring.
