Despite recent announcements that many of the nation’s largest school districts will return to fully in-person instruction for the 2021-2022 school year, almost half of parents say they won’t discontinue many of the remote and hybrid learning models adopted in response to pandemic-related school shutdowns. That is according to findings from the second publication in Tyton Partners’ “School Disrupted” series, developed with support from the Walton Family Foundation.
Surveying 2,500 people, the “School Disrupted” report aims to understand parent and caregiver decisions to switch or supplement their child’s school, their motivations for making the change, their satisfaction with their choices, and their expectations for the future.
“A majority of parents are emerging from pandemic-schooling with a favorable view of the role learning pods and other forms of alternative school models can have on the breadth and quality of their child’s education,” said Adam Newman, Co-founder and Managing Partner, Tyton Partners. “Parents’ experiences and insights will persist into the new academic year.”
“Schools should be actively rethinking how they can meet the full spectrum of learning and development needs for students as a result of the pandemic,” said Andrea Zurita, Principal at Tyton Partners. “Parents want – and students need – experiences and support that extend beyond the traditional classroom environment.”
