COVID and THE DIGITAL DIVIDE
Decision to continue to online education for low income children:
Children of lower socioeconomics live in communities with limited access to computers and or internet access. This is also compounded by the stress of not having regular meals and no help with instruction. This combination can cause the child to less attentive and disengaged in the learning process. As schools around the nation decide what is best for their respective communities, parents will have to decide if computer based learning is effective for their child.
COVID-19 AND SCHOOL
Most parents of K-12 students are worried about their children falling behind in school because of pandemic-related disruptions
Amid disruptions caused by the coronavirus outbreak, a majority of parents of K-12 students (65%) express at least some concern about their children falling behind in school, with three-in-ten saying they are very concerned. Parents with lower incomes (72%) are more likely than middle-income (63%) and upper-income (55%) parents to say they are concerned about their children falling behind in school as a result of disruptions caused by the pandemic.
Parents whose children are getting a mix of in-person and online instruction are the most likely to be concerned about their children falling behind in school, and those whose children are getting in-person instruction only are the least likely to be concerned. About three-quarters of parents whose children are getting a mix of instruction (74%) say they are very or somewhat concerned about their children falling behind, compared with 65% of those whose children are getting online instruction only and 56% of those whose children are getting in-person instruction only.
