What to Know: Giving families more choices in education leads to better education outcomes—and even better mental health for students, a new study shows.

The TPPF Take: School closures and lingering uncertainty about whether they’ll remain open has led to spikes in mental health issues for many students.

“But there’s much we can do now to help our kids to brighter futures,” says TPPF’s Emily Sass. “It begins by recognizing that schools aren’t ‘super-spreaders.’ It’s vital to ensure that schools are open and stay open, safely, so students who are ready can access instruction. Next, we should allow remote learning for those students who prefer it. We must give families more choices, not fewer.”
