“Remote learning continues to be a concern among New Jersey parents, though most say they are generally pleased with the way their schools and the state are handling reopenings during the pandemic, according to a new poll. The survey, conducted by Global Strategy Group in partnership with charter school advocate organizations JerseyCAN and the New Jersey Children’s Foundation, found that 77 percent of those questioned rated the job their schools are doing as positive while 70 percent approve of the job Gov. Phil Murphy is doing reopening schools. However, only 42 percent of parents rated remote learning as successful. While 66 percent of parents reported remote learning this fall has improved from last spring when schools went remote suddenly due to Murphy’s school closure order, the survey found a meaningful disparity with remote learning success — especially among low-income Black and Latinx parents.”
