Why Students Still Can't Access Remote Learning: How Schools Can Help


September 21, 2020

A familiar refrain from the spring has returned: Thousands of students aren't showing up for remote learning as a new school year begins, and schools are continuing to scramble for short- and long-term solutions.

As of Sept. 2, 73 percent of the 100 largest U.S. school districts had chosen remote learning only as their back-to-school instructional model, affecting more than 8 million students, according to Education Week's school reopenings database. Many more districts are offering hybrid instruction, a mix of in-person and online learning.

More than 3,600 public school students in Cincinnati have been missing from virtual learning so far. Schools in Flint, Mich., are tracking down hundreds of students who weren't showing up for virtual instruction. More than 40,000 students were missing during Houston's first week of fully remote instruction. And many of New York City's 114,000 students living in shelters or doubling up with family and friends are experiencing difficulty logging on as they get ready for school to start next week.
