Parents across the country continue to be concerned about their children’s academic and social-emotional well-being. Some parents are sufficiently satisfied with their children’s school and are content with a return to a pre-pandemic normal. Other parents are sufficiently dissatisfied and have already made a change, whether between schools, to home-schooling, or with supplemental learning opportunities. In between is a third group of parents — those who are frustrated and have not yet made a change, but are looking to policymakers and education leaders for solutions. 

New Solutions for Frustrated Parents: How Education Leaders Can Help offers four recommendations for policymakers and education leaders to address the discontent among parents as the 2021-22 school year comes to a close:

  • Work with parents to better understand their needs.

  • Increase the number of educational options available to families.

  • Inform families about educational options that could meet their children’s needs.

  • Reduce barriers to access. 

By responding to parent needs, policymakers and education leaders can better support families and students in the upcoming school year and beyond.
