These Students Split on At-Home Versus In-School Learning

Everyone has been debating about whether schools should open or not. And like every other debate there are two sides and two perspectives in this.

I decided to take a survey on my instagram account, and got 100 responses. Just over half – 54% – said they wanted to go back to school in person. That left 46% saying that’s rather keep going from home.

Comments ranged from the stay-at-home side ranged from wanting to “stay in bed all day” and “eat whatever whenever they want to.”

The back-to-live-school students complained that “chromebooks crash a lot” and that they are “not learning anything on zoom.” One said “my eyes get watery” from staring at a screen all day.

Chicago Public Schools says they will make a decision November 5, though chances of getting back in the building seem very low.
