Tyton Partners launches a new report series in partnership with Stand Together Trust and the Walton Family Foundation on how the COVID-19 pandemic has continued to disrupt K-12 enrollment trends.
BOSTON, September 20, 2022
Tyton Partners, the leading global investment banking and strategy consulting firm exclusively dedicated to the rapidly evolving Global Education Sector, has published a new three-part publication in collaboration with Stand Together Trust, a philanthropic community tackling the root causes of America’s biggest problems, and the Walton Family Foundation, a family-lead foundation. The publication, School Disrupted 2022, details the impact the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have on K-12 enrollment trends through the lens of parents.
With data collected from more than 6,000 K-12 parents across all 50 states in the United States, this new series represents one of the largest parent-driven evaluations of post-pandemic K-12 enrollment dynamics, learning preferences, and the future of traditional and student-centric school models.
The work is a continuation of School Disrupted 2021 published in mid-2021 with support from the Walton Family Foundation. The 2022 series is comprised of three parts:
Thanks to the participation of 7,400 faculty and administrators at more than 1,500 different institutions, these three reports, Driving Toward a Degree, Hitting Their Stride, and Time for Class, identify where in the student journey obstacles remain.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has permanently altered the K-12 education ecosystem. Our School Disrupted 2022 series delivers timely insights into changes affecting schools – from tracking enrollment shifts to the increasing urgency and agency parents are demonstrating in identifying the best learning environments for their children,” according to Adam Newman, Founder and Partner at Tyton Partners. “I am extremely proud of our Tyton K-12 team and grateful for our companionship with Stand Together Trust and the Walton Family Foundation to address these important dynamics and to help draw attention to and elevate the perspective of K-12 parents.”
The highly anticipated three-part publication will be released over the next few weeks and will continue to expand on the different school models families are exploring, and how the K-12 landscape might adapt to parents’ changing preferences.
