Half of students said online learning assignments helped
Only 39% of students who participated in the Youth Truth survey said they learned something every day while school buildings were closed.
However, students who typically get higher grades rated their experiences much more positively than did lower-performing learners.
More than 40% of A students said they learned a lot every day compared to just 13% of students who get mostly Ds.
Students gave more favorable ratings to school logistics: 92% reporting receiving regular assignments and 87% said they could access their work.
Not surprisingly, students from low-income families reported facing greater obstacles.
More than a quarter of students eligible for free and reduced-price lunch said they “limited or no internet access,” with 26% of Latinx students reported the same problem.
