Sharing is Caring!

The number of students attending public schools during the 2020-2021 academic year fell by roughly 3% compared with the previous year.

The data comes from the National Center for Education Statistics, a federal agency that analyzes education figures.

The 3% drop represents some 1.5 million students according to the preliminary report. A final report will not be available until next spring, according to the NCES. Figures come from reports generated by state departments of education.
