More than 1 in 3 Minnesota parents reluctant to send kids back to school, survey finds


More than one-third of Minnesota parents are uncomfortable or unsure about sending their children back to school this fall amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new survey by the Minnesota Department of Education.

Asked whether they "would feel comfortable sending your student(s) back to a classroom this fall," 64% said yes, 11% said no and 24% were unsure.

Those reluctant to send their kids back to school said their main concern was public health. Daily cleaning was the most likely to make them feel more comfortable, along with small class sizes, daily health checks and a decrease in COVID-19 cases.
