Very few Americans believe schools should return to normal operations this fall, a new poll says, even as President Donald Trump insists that's what parents and students want.

BOSTON (AP) - Virtual instruction. Mandated masks. Physical distancing. The start of school will look very different this year because of the coronavirus - and that's OK with the vast majority of Americans.

Only about 1 in 10 Americans think daycare centers, preschools or K-12 schools should open this fall without restrictions, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs. Most think mask requirements and other safety measures are necessary to restart in-person instruction, and roughly 3 in 10 say that teaching kids in classrooms shouldn't happen at all.

The findings are a sharp contrast to the picture that President Donald Trump paints as he pressures schools to reopen. Trump said Wednesday that he would be "comfortable" with his son Barron and grandchildren attending school in person this fall.
