Back To School: Getting The Okay For K-12 Students
Between virtual classes, a little bit of in-person learning, and a whole lot of anxiety, kids did not exactly get a full school year in 2020.
One study from NWEA, a nonprofit organization that provides academic assessments, found that students are behind where they would be in a normal year, sometimes by as much as 17 percentage points.
