poll of California parents conducted from March 26 to April 1 showed that a majority fear major educational setbacks for their children due to school closures. As 39 states confirm that schools will stay closed for the rest of the academic year and some begin to discuss closures extending into summer and fall, educators are grappling with how to sufficiently prepare students for next school year.

According to 41% of parents responding to the above poll by Education Trust-West, not having enough devices like computers or tablets at home was considered a major barrier in feeling confident that their children would be able to participate in remote or distance learning.
