COVID HYSTERIA’S FALLOUT: Students Opting Out of College Post-Covid. “The coronavirus is changing the course of young adults’ educational endeavors, according to a new report. Nearly 30 percent of students across the U.S. are opting out of attending college altogether. Alternatively, 36% of students in the U.S. have chosen a different learning format such as online classes and 9% of students previously enrolled have switched schools.”

Neither K-12 nor higher education handled Covid well, or in a way that made them seem indispensable. Quite the contrary.
