The following article, Now 59% of American Parents More Likely to Consider Homeschooling, Skyrocketing Past 40% Just Last Month, was first published on Big League Politics.
New polling indicates that a majority of American parents are more likely to consider homeschooling their children after the coronavirus recession.
A survey conducted by Ipsos/USA Today indicates that a majority of 59% of American parents are more likely to homeschool their children.
Nearly all public education systems have been shut down as a result of the coronavirus lockdowns, essentially placing the education of most American students on hold. Homeschooling could present an alternative that would enable students to continue learning in spite of the restrictions.
An earlier poll in April revealed that 40% of American parents are more willing to consider homeschooling.

The aftermath of the coronavirus epidemic may have lasting effects on public education systems, with more polling suggesting that 1 in 5 public school teachers don’t plan on returning to schools in light of the lockdowns. Such a development is likely to preclude broad consequences for public education, with far greater class sizes that lower the quality of individual education.
Some liberals have become increasingly hostile to the very concept of public education, with Harvard Law School recently planning a conference to question the very basis of its legality and level reaching insinuations against parents that decide to homeschool their children. But it appears in the wake of the epidemic that the concept of homeschooling is alive and well.
