TV6 Cares: Learn United Quad Cities
The COVID-19 shutdown has brought about the longest-ever spring break for students. The impact of lost school days and classroom learning has both teachers and parents concerned.
With this issue in mind, KWQC-TV6 is proud to partner with United Way, 14 area school districts, and many QCA cultural institutions to bring about "TV6 Cares: Learn United Quad Cities".
Cultural institutions, like

where they have been airing lessons for Ohio children for the last few weeks.
In fact, if you are interested in having your children exposed to additional lesson plans, please
*The "Learn United Quad Cities content will also be rebroadcast on Cozi TV at 8:00 a.m. the next day, followed by an hour of educational content produced by Cleveland Metropolitan School District (from Cleveland19 News).
