The results of that analysis are also compared to a recent Education Next survey, “Pandemic Parent Survey Finds Perverse Pattern: Students Are More Likely to Be Attending School in Person where Covid Is Spreading More Rapidly.”

Gross’s full analysis, “U-Turn — Survey of 477 Districts Shows Surge in COVID-19 Cases Is Reversing Reopening Progress In America’s Schools,” co-written with Alice Opalka and Padma Gundapaneni, is available now.
