Enrollment Exodus Fueled by Pandemic-Related Closures

A new report shows districts where students spent the most time learning remotely during the 2020-2021 school year lost at least half a million more students than they would have if they stayed open. The report also shows the enrollment loss was not just pandemic-related, it was pandemic-response related.
