As online classes become the new normal, some students fall behind
The abrupt switch from classrooms to online courses during the coronavirus pandemic left some children struggling to catch up.

"You can't get in there and help them the way you would if you're in person," Tanguma said.
McAllen ISD and other districts are making resources and extra help available for struggling students, but online classes remain a challenge.
