Today, nearly all families face challenges with their children's educational development due to the impacts of COVID-19. Military families are not spared. Their challenges come with added complications, such as moves mandated by military service causing academic disruptions and stressful family separations due to deployments, mobilizations, and now, duty-required quarantines.
The importance of literacy as a building block for educational development has become even more apparent through these challenges.
