Back to School? Some Parents Aren’t So Sure

Are you uncertain about your child’s education in the fall, and worried about the rising health concerns with COVID-19? You’re not alone.

A recent survey found that over 60% of parents are hesitant to send their children back to school amid new fears of COVID-19, updated mask regulations, and the rising Delta variant – which is responsible for 83% of new cases in the US.

“Parents are concerned about sending their children back to in-person school this fall, but their anxiety is further heightened to think of yet another year of learning loss under the failures of brick-and-mortar schools’ emergency virtual operations.”
—James Rhyu, Stride Chief Executive Officer
