Returning To Classrooms During COVID-19

Project Description

All schools closed at some point during the 2019-2020 school year due to COVID-19. However, only two states, Montana and Wyoming, allowed schools to reopen during the same school year while all others remained closed. What this study endeavors to share is the multicultural conversation online discussing children’s return to classrooms as a new school year in August 2020 drew nearer. Much of this conversation revolved around the intention of returning to in-person class, but these talks soon turned to dialogue of hybrid or virtual school entirely.

The O.Y.E. tool was used to examine Twitter conversations and formulate a multicultural analysis of students returning to in-person classrooms. O.Y.E. is able to segment this data into groups based on ethnicity, age, and spoken language among other filters. Download the free report to learn more.


This analysis was extrapolated from a data set of 32,517 conversations on Twitter, of which 4,855 were from verified U.S. Hispanics and 2,995 were from verified Black Americans. All data was gathered from 07/15/2020 – 08/13/2020.
