Statewide Survey Finds Michigan Parents Strongly Support Public Schools’ Efforts During COVID-19, Believe Funding Increases Should be Permanent

  • 69% of parents approve of the way their school supported their child during the COVID-19 pandemic last school year.
  • Parents are split nearly 50/50 on whether they believe their child fell behind academically last year, but of those parents who do, 60% believe their school has the resources and support needed to put their child back on track
  • More than 75% of parents surveyed are largely comfortable sending their child back to the classroom this fall, with strong majorities believing new COVID-19 related health protocols are necessary and that schools should return to remote learning if there are large spikes in COVID cases in the state.
