We are far from the goal of providing high-quality tutoring to all who need it.
We find evidence of worsening mental health since 2013 among both boys and girls.
Over the last two school years our Understanding America Study survey of parents with K-12 children in their household helped to shed light on the huge disparities within and across children’s access to, and preferences for, in-person learning.
Survey data shows remote learners are suffering from lower-quality learning, less quantity and quality of interactions with teachers, and less social interaction with peers.
Three-quarters of responding parents support or strongly support schools offering both remote and in-person instruction.
