Districts Continue to Struggle with Staffing, Political Polarization, and Unfinished Instruction

From the report: "To obtain a national picture of districts' challenges at the end of the third school year during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the authors assess nationally representative survey responses from 291 district leaders who completed the American School District Panel (ASDP) survey in spring 2022. Their analysis examines differences by district characteristic (locale, poverty level, and student racial and ethnic composition) and over time (when available). Survey findings reveal that districts continue to struggle with how to manage teacher shortages, political polarization in schools, student and staff mental health concerns, and pandemic-related student learning loss."
