A RealClear Opinion Research poll released Thursday found that 40% of families are "more likely" to homeschool their children after the coronavirus lockdowns end.

The American Federation of Children asked more than 2,000 registered voters, "Are you more or less likely to enroll your son or daughter in a homeschool, neighborhood homeschool co-op, or virtual school once the lockdowns are over?"

Of the 626 parents who responded, 40.8% replied they were "more likely" to participate in homeschooling, while 31.1% said they were "less likely."

The results also showed that 45.7% of parents who said they would be "more likely" to homeschool identified as Democrat, while 42.3% identified as Republican.
