A new survey shows that most U.S. parents plan to send their kids to school for in-person learning this fall.
The survey, commissioned by the Rockefeller Foundation, shows 89% of parents were OK with in-person schooling as of late July - up 5% from a similar survey done in May.
Only about a quarter of respondents say they know the details about plans to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among young students, according to the survey.
In New York City, public schools currently have no remote option for the coming school year, though some education advocates have been calling on the city to provide a remote learning option.
