America After 3PM among middle school youth

In a nationally representative survey of parents (commissioned by the Afterschool Alliance in the fall of 2020 to supplement data collected before the schools and states began to close in response to the pandemic), 2 in 3 parents of middle school students reported that they were concerned about their child staying on-track in school. More than half of these parents (55 percent) reported feelings of stress thinking about continuing to provide learning support for their child if virtual school and distance learning continues. In the midst of the pandemic, parents continue to value the supports that afterschool programs provide, with a full 70 percent of parents of middle schoolers reporting that the experience of the coronavirus has made them appreciate school teachers and afterschool providers more than ever.
