Will Private Schools See Enrollment Surges As Public Schools Delay In-Person Learning?
It seems that many private schools are more eager to reopen this fall to offer in-person classes, while public schools are largely continuing with the online learning that started with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Trump administration has pressured the schools to reopen as the science indicates that the young people attending them are less likely to contract the virus or to pass the virus to adults.
President Trump has even threatened to withhold some federal funding from schools that dismiss the science.
According to reports, private schools in some counties in Texas, California, North Carolina, and a few other states plan to open as planned in the fall. Some enrollment rates to private schools have surged as a result.
