Out-of-School Time Programs This Summer: Paving the Way for Children to Find Passion, Purpose & Voice - Parent, Teacher & OST Provider Perceptions reports
After a year of pandemic-induced isolation, parents’ top priorities for their children’s summer programs are addressing their social and emotional health, providing physical outdoor activities and helping them discover their passion and purpose. Those were key findings from a new national survey conducted in February and March 2021, and interviews and focus groups conducted earlier in December. Both were undertaken by Edge Research for Learning Heroes, a nonprofit dedicated to elevating the voice of parents in education, with support from the Wallace Foundation.
