According to Department of Education data released this week, 42 percent of New York City’s over 1 million public school students will not be returning to school buildings this year and are instead opting for fully remote learning. Out of those students requesting to opt-out of the city’s blended learning model, where students take classes online and in the classroom, 25 percent identify as Asian, 21 percent as Black, 38 percent as Hispanic, 11 percent as white and 3 percent as other.
