WalletHub Study: School reopening survey

With reopening schools being a hotly debated topic and in-person learning essential for letting parents go to work this fall, WalletHub released a nationally representative School Reopening Survey, which found that 55 percent of parents want their children to learn in person. Below are highlights of the survey, along with a WalletHub Q&A (audio available). 

  • Some parents can’t stay home. 32 percent of parents are not able to work remotely.
  • Mixed feelings on teacher compensation. Almost 1 in 4 parents think that teachers who work remotely should either get paid less, work longer hours or give up vacation days.
  • Fathers want schools to open more. 31 percent more fathers than mothers want schools to reopen for in-person learning.
  • Politics impact reopening opinions. Two-thirds of conservative parents favor schools reopening, versus less than half of liberal parents.
