Hundreds of Thousands of Students Didn’t Return to School After the Coronavirus:
An estimated 240,000 students across 21 different states did not return to school following the coronavirus, a study from Stanford and the Associated Press found.
While private school and homeschooling enrollment surged during this same timeframe, these 240,000 students did not resume their studies elsewhere, but instead are unaccounted for.
Some school leaders have warned that “when you lose kids, you lose resources,” which in turn “impacts your ability to serve kids with very high needs.”
Over the course of the first two years since the coronavirus outbreak, K-12 enrollment in public schools fell by an astounding 1.2 million students.
Meanwhile, the study also found that the popularity of both private schooling and homeschooling increased. While private school enrollment was four percent higher in the 2021-2022 school year than it was in the previous year, homeschooling enrollment shot up a full 30 percent in the same time frame. Private school growth was particularly pronounced for kindergarten and early elementary students.
Homeschool enrollment growth varied wildly by state, with North Carolina only showing an eight percent increase, the lowest of any state. Meanwhile in Florida, homeschooling enrollment jumped by 43 percent. The growth was even higher in other states, with homeschool enrollment surging by 53 percent in Pennsylvania and an astounding 65 percent in New York. --->READ MORE HERE

In latest blow to school closures, study finds kids over 100 times less likely to die from COVID than adults:
Kids in the U.S. are more than 100 times less likely to die from COVID than adults, according to a new study.
The study, published by the JAMA Network of medical journals, came after students suffered historic learning loss due to school closures during the COVID pandemic — a loss in academic progress whose effects may be felt for years to come.
Children aged 0-19 died from COVID at a rate of 1 per 100,000 from August 2021 through July 2022, the study found. There were 821 COVID deaths — meaning cases when COVID was the underlying cause of death — for this age range during the 12-month period.
Specifically, COVID death rates in infants younger than 1 year were 4.3 deaths per 100,000, 0.6 per 100,000 in children aged 1 to 4 years, 0.4 per 100,000 in children aged 5 to 9 years, 0.5 per 100,000 in children aged 10 to 14 years, and 1.8 per 100,000 in those aged 15 to 19 years.
By comparison, there were more than 360,000 total COVID deaths in the U.S. in this time. This means, according to the study, that people died from COVID at a rate of 109 per 100,000, making kids more than a hundred times less likely to die from the virus than adults.
Meanwhile, the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center released data on Sunday showing COVID has led to 337 deaths per 100,000 people in the U.S. The JAWA study used different methodology than Johns Hopkins, but both datasets suggest COVID is much less deadly for kids than for the overall population.
This suggestion was bolstered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which last week released data showing children account for less than 0.15% of all COVID deaths. --->READ MORE HERE
