CBC – When the COVID-19 pandemic forced schools to close, tens of thousands of students never moved to online learning and many have effectively dropped out.

Enrolment figures have fluctuated this school year, with students who were expected to attend missing from in-person as well as virtual classes. It’s not clear exactly how many are unaccounted for, but according to public school boards and divisions across the country, there may be a host of reasons for why they haven’t shown up: from kindergarten students who deferred starting to families who moved regions or into private schools to kids now being home-schooled.
