Many parents are using summer enrichment programs to keep their children from falling behind

The average parent estimates their child has regressed two whole grade levels since the pandemic began. Half of American parents think all children should retake the grade they've been in again this fall because of the pandemic. A survey of 2,000 parents of U.S. schoolchildren 8-13 examined the increasing education gaps kids are facing as people begin to think of a permanent return to in-person education this fall. Two in three parents are terrified their kids have begun to hate learning because they're so frustrated and 63% have noticed decreased engagement in schoolwork. Already tricky STEM subjects like Math and Science that had students on the ropes pre-pandemic now have seven in ten parents noting these topics are particularly challenging at home. OnePoll conducted the research on behalf of BYJU'S FutureSchool and it showed that parents are struggling alongside their children.
