The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly disrupted schooling nationwide, raising serious concerns about the impact of the pandemic on children’s learning. But, as Batten’s Daphna Bassok and co-author Anna Shapiro write in Brooking’s “Brown Center Chalkboard” blog, relatively less has been written about the experiences of the “missing children”—those who have not enrolled in public school at all.
