Q: Should In-Person Learning Resume this Fall? | UPDATED

In our September 2020 survey, we asked respondents about their views on in-person learning resuming last fall. At that time, majority of respondents (63%) supported remote learning for the fall of 2020.


With the arrival of the 2021-22 school year, we asked respondents once again if they think schools should move forward with in-person this fall. Our latest results reveal that respondents are divided on classroom formats for the 2021-22 school year.

A substantial portion of respondents (46%) believe that schools should shift to a hybrid learning model, while 30% of respondents think that schools should offer in-person learning only.


This marks a 23% increase among respondents who support hybrid learning and a 16% increase among respondents who support in-person learning since September of 2020.
