'Virtually' no fans of remote learning in NYC, according to poll

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s experiment with virtual learning during the COVID-19 pandemic scored some poor grades from Democratic voters in a poll commissioned by The Post.

A broad plurality of respondents — 44.8 percent — said their family’s experiences left them “not satisfied,” while just 15.8 percent said they were “extremely satisfied,” according to the survey conducted by McLaughlin & Associates.

On a scale of zero to 10, the largest segment of respondents — 18.7 percent — chose a middling five and 10.8 percent gave virtual learning a goose egg.

“Remote learning was a joke. It was an unmitigated disaster,” said Sam Pirozzolo, vice president of the NYC Parents Union.
