A new survey from the Biden administration finds that large numbers of students are not returning to the classroom even as more schools reopen for full-time, in-person learning. The findings reflect a nation that’s been locked in debate over the safety of reopening schools during the coronavirus pandemic.

Even as national COVID-19 rates continued to ebb in February, key measures around reopening schools barely budged. The survey shows nearly 46% of public schools offered five days a week of in-person learning to all students in February but just 34% of students were learning full-time in the classroom. White students were far more likely to be learning in-person than their nonwhite classmates.
