Homeschooling

What challenges are parents facing with distance learning?

All respondents living with one or more children in K-12 who had some remote education in the spring were asked about the challenges they faced with distance learning. Using results from the survey, the research team released a data brief highlighting the frustrations caretakers had with virtual schooling in the 2020-2021 school year. Some of the most common frustrations included student attention problems, low social interaction, and low teacher interaction. The research team then followed up with a subset of respondents to see what were the challenges their students had with schooling in the 2021-2022 school year, highlighted in this data brief.

These open-ended responses will be helpful to determine what terms to search for on social media in order to identify posts discussing homeschooling.

Words that were frequently used by caregivers in open-ended responses.
