40% more likely to continue homeschooling after COVID shutdown ends




Homeschooling may not be as difficult and unrealistic as many have thought – at least that what a surprising number of families have discovered during the 2020 COVID shutdown.

A RealClear Opinion Research survey of 2,122 registered voters shows that support for educational choice is strong, and that a significant portion of parents are more likely to pursue homeschooling opportunities after the lockdowns end. The results show that 40% of families are more likely to homeschool or virtual school after lockdowns, and that 64% support school choice and 69% support the federal Education Freedom Scholarships proposal.

Here's what they were asked about homeschooling … 

Are you more or less likely to enroll your son or daughter in a homeschool, neighborhood homeschool co-op, or virtual school once the lockdowns are over?

Their responses: 

More Likely: 40.8%
Less Likely: 31.1%
