Most likely, students that have left public school will not return. Private schools are offering more extended options for pick up and drop off, which parents need. Parents are returning to their offices, and they must find viable options for their children. If they are remote learning, depending on the child’s age, they may need someone to sit with them during the day while remote learning. This may not be an option for some parents. Parents also have come to realize that paying for tuition has some perks, such as the ability to have a more significant say in the education of their children. Overall, parents seem happy with their switch to private schools over remote learning options.
There are many changes as we attempt to enter a post-pandemic world, including education. We learned many things as a result of the pandemic, including what works and what does not. As a result, parents have made choices about education for different reasons than they have in the past.
