+Grim Reaper 6 Posted February 12 #1 Share Posted February 12 Hundreds of thousands of students are 'missing' from the school system after failing to enroll when the COVID pandemic sent students home for remote learning. An analysis conducted by Stanford University staff and The Associated Press found an estimated 230,000 students in 21 states whose absences could not be accounted for. 'Missing' students received crisis-level attention in 2020 after the pandemic closed schools nationwide. These students didn't move out of state, and they didn't sign up for private school or home-school, according to publicly available data. Findings revealed families avoided school for a range of reasons, including continued fear of COVID-19, homelessness, and depression. Along with AP, the analysis was conducted with Stanford University's Big Local News project and Stanford education professor Thomas Dee. The analysis originally claimed 240,000 students were 'missing' but has since been updated to 230,000. The states analyzed, include: California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Washington and Wisconsin. The real tally of young people not receiving an education is likely far greater than the 230,000 figure calculated by the AP and Stanford. Overall, public school enrollment fell by over 700,000 students between the 2019-20 and 2021-22 school years in the 21 states plus Washington, D.C., that provided the necessary data. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/staggering-230-000-students-in-21-states-are-missing-from-the-school-system/ar-AA17oRwb?cvid=36f768d8508b4242b546970e81512aed 2 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
