49% Are Unlikely To Let Their Kids Go Back Even if Schools Reopen Soon

Americans strongly doubt the schools in their area will reopen before the end of the current school year, and even if they did, half of those with school-age kids say they probably wouldn’t let them go back.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 13% of American Adults think the schools in their community will reopen before the current school year ends, with three percent (3%) who say it’s Very Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
