The United States is facing a crisis in the area of afterschool education. Recent polling suggests that over 90% of parents believe that afterschool programs are essential for their child’s education, but for most parents, high-quality afterschool programs are out of reach. According to a recent study, more than 24.6 million children in the U.S. are unable to join after-school programs.
Understanding the problem
Among the reasons listed by parents for not sending their children to afterschool programs, these highlight the difficulty that parents face when trying to give their kids a quality education:
Cost: A majority of parents cited cost of afterschool programs as being largest barrier that stood between them and enrolling their child in a program. With some courses coming in at $3,600 per year, the cost is impossible to manage.
Availability: More than 42% of parents reported that afterschool programs were not available in their community, indicating that nearly half the children in this country are unable to attend afterschool programs because there aren’t enough of them.
Transportation: Parents said transportation played a role in their inability to send their kids to afterschool programs. With some parents working two jobs, there isn’t time to get their kids out of the house. For other families in larger cities, parents worry about safe transport because they don’t have access to a car.
Quality: Another factor stopping parents from putting their children into afterschool programs is quality. Most afterschool programs are more daycare than education, with kids only playing around instead of learning something that’s truly beneficial.
