Changing Course: Public School Enrollment Shifts During the Pandemic

Changing Course: Public School Enrollment Shifts During the Pandemic

November 16, 2022

Changing Course: Public School Enrollment Shifts During the Pandemic is an analysis of student enrollment trends in public schools during the pandemic (2019-20 to 2021-22 school years). The numbers showed more than 240,000 students enrolled in charter schools, a 7% increase—while district public schools lost approximately 1.5 million students—nearly a 3.5% decrease. Charter schools are the only types of public schools that increased enrollment during the pandemic.

The report also examines population shifts and enrollment trends for White, Black, and Hispanic students. The data indicate an increase in White, Black, and Hispanic enrollment in public charter schools. Overall, public charter school enrollment outpaced state population shifts in the majority of the states examined.
