Engagement, Access and Morale: How Are Students Responding to Extended School Closures?

A new survey of teachers and district leaders finds that COVID-19-related school closures have had significant impacts on student engagement, truancy, morale and educational equity.

The survey – the latest in a series conducted by the Ed Week Research Center since March – also offers a window into district officials’ plans for reopening in the 2020-21 school year, and the perceived effectiveness of various remote learning tools.

Holly Kurtz, director of the Ed Week Research Center, join CPRE Knowledge Hub managing editor Keith Heumiller to discuss the survey results and some important implications for educators and district officials across the country.
