Only one-quarter of parents, for example, reported that video conferencing was occurring on a daily basis.

In addition, while 60% of parents said they believed the amount of work was “about right,” and 60% said the work itself seemed “challenging enough,” just half thought that online learning was going well. Students in the lower elementary grades — kindergarten through second grade — who were thought to be thriving stood at 42%.

Consider, too: Only parents whose children shifted to online learning participated in the survey. Not every child has made the move.
