Statement from U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona on Results of April 2021 NAEP Survey on School Reopening

“Today's data reaffirms what we’ve been seeing and hearing for months – that we’ve met and exceeded President Biden’s goal of reopening the majority of K-8 schools, and that as a nation we continue to make significant progress in reopening as many schools as possible before the summer. As of April, 96 percent of K-8 schools were offering in-person learning options and 59 percent of these schools were offering full-time in-person instruction.
