Sandy-Socked Parents Turn to Homeschooling

BELLE HARBOR — Parents of students at hurricane-socked schools say they would rather teach their kids themselves — or even let them skip class — than relocate them to up-and-running schools too far from home.

Hurricane Sandy severely damaged 57 city schools, including many in tight-knit Rockaway communities, according to the Department of Education. Starting Wednesday, the city will relocate those students, but many parents left stranded without power, phones and transportation are uneasy about the plan.
