New York City public schools will return exclusively to in-person learning without a remote option this Fall, Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

“You can’t have a full recovery without full-strength schools, everyone back sitting in those classrooms, kids learning again. So that’s what we’re going to have in September,” De Blasio said during a segment on MSNBC.

This school year, 60 percent of the city’s students are learning remotely rather than attending in person classes. This, despite the drastic decrease in coronavirus cases being recorded citywide.
