Back to school - does it make any difference, now with new conclusions


Two political scientists from the CBS research platform, Inequality, Jens Olav Dahlgaard and Zoltán Fazekas, investigate into this. And in their second report they have new conclusions as to whether 'homeschooling' versus 'back to school' have an impact on the familiy situation as regards to health, emotional well-being, government support and the family's economical situation. Find the report here.


The main conclusions are that the situation with more children being back to school makes the parents answer that they are less worried about infection, feel less stress and have better conditions for doing their work. They have a little less trust in the authorities, though, especially the parents whose children did not go back to school. And the overall picture, seen from the parent's perspective, is that all the children have a little less well-being, regardless of whether they leave their home for school or not.
