Stop classroom learning, lose students


Students and families have paid a heavy price for pandemic school closures. Now, a study shows that school districts and teachers’ unions can pay a financial price to keep children out of classrooms.

According to the American Enterprise Institute’s report, nationwide K-12 enrollment has declined by nearly 3%, or about 1.3 million students, over the past two school years. Notably, enrollment fell more in 2020-21 in districts with the most remote learning (3.2%) than in those with the most in-person learning (2.1%). Many parents have decided to homeschool their children rather than letting them stare at screens all day.
