'Parents feel greater ownership in their child's education'
Post-pandemic parents want to don't want to leave their children's education to the local school system, concludes a survey released Oct. 26, reports Jo Napolitano on The 74.
“What we’re hearing from parents loud and clear is they feel a greater sense of ownership over their child’s education,” said Christian Lehr, a senior principal in Tyton’s strategy consulting practice. “
Most said the pandemic changed their priorities, reports Napolitano. "Fifty-one percent said personal interest and needs should drive a child’s education rather than grade-level requirements" and "nearly 80 percent said learning can and should happen anywhere."
However, students from disadvantaged families were less likely to have out-of-school learning opportunities.
