Thousands of Brooklyn families are getting help with homeschooling thanks to a free program run by BRIC and the Department of Education.

Each weekday, three-hour broadcasts will run on BRIC’s Brooklyn Free Speech network, showing educational content created by Brooklyn teachers, principals and educators. The show will run between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m.

“In these times of great need, our institution is responding to our community by creating educational content accessible to all and bridging the digital divide that is now more prevalent than ever,” BRIC President Kristina Newman-Scott said.

“We’re thrilled to partner with the NYC Department of Education in this important project.”

The program will reach hundreds of thousands of Brooklyn households, giving parents and teachers an additional resource to boost the remote learning experience.

BRIC launched Emmy-winning, community-produced TV and podcast network Brooklyn Free Speech as a public access initiative in 1990. Since then, it has streamed thousands of hours of community-produced programming.

You can stream the educational TV show here, or it is available on Spectrum channel 1993, Optimum channel 951 and Verizon channel 47 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Monday to Friday.
