“Education is about much more than just classroom learning. For millions of children and youth, schools are a lifeline of opportunity as well as a shield,” writes Angelina Jolie and Audrey Azoulay https://t.co/mwMbo03z8a


Kids, like adults, find it hard to tolerate the uncertainty about when schools will reopen. Teachers should validate the difficulty of the situation and reassure students that they will provide more information as soon as it’s known. @KaraNewhouse https://t.co/J1ltzzAvg9

87 per cent of the world student population affected ... #education Over 160 countries have nation-wide school closings #Covid_19 #coronavirus #covid19Canada https://t.co/DmFqPUcTjE


There is no silver lining to school closings, slap-dash remote learning, switching to credit/no credit for primary or secondary school students. Some wealthy families will be able to find education for their own children, but this is all-around a bad state of educational affairs. https://t.co/mO8eHjPeeG


Newsflash: all of the school and work closings are NOT meant to be a free for all. They’re literally for your protection. Young/older people ignoring this will just prolong quarantine and the spread of this virus. WAKE. UP.


This is all about relationship. Letting students know we are here, that we support them, and that’s it’s going to be 👌🏾. Staying in Touch: Why Kids Need Teachers During Coronavirus School Closings https://t.co/uNrY8JVjVM


@jasonaschnur @ChrisRongey @stlCupofJoe CNBC asked Trump on January 22nd about Coronavirus. He said he wasn't worried CDC was warning about school closings: 1/24. NPR reported the same on January 25th. All stations/media running State of Emergency declaration by Secretary Azar 1/31. When did Trump catch on?

@kennethgutman @kennethgutman Since President Trump extended the social distancing until April 30th are school closings gonna be closed until that Time?

@mrplummer34 @ProfSecchi @DaWh0leTruth @Razzpunk @LauraRBelin @IAGovernor @IAPublicHealth Not necessarily teachers alone. But the school systems. Are you saying that no one anticipated school closings? I feel like we all knew it was coming for a couple weeks, knew it was a possibility for a couple of weeks before that. I agree, the announcement came quickly.


@AltonVaden @PeakVentilators @realDonaldTrump And by the way, there were some school closings during the H1N1 epidemic in America.


@stranahan Lee, I'm a fan of yours. I can tell you that the president extending the order for thirty days is not making me happy. If our governor extends school closings until the end of month or end of year my house will be devistated. Not just financially.


@sashafoxbitxh @Thought54728934 @business The difference, #H1N1 killed those under 60, #COVID19 kills those over 60.... We had a few school closings....that was it


a reminder as well that my county currently only has school closings to April 15

@GovMikeDeWine if you extend school closings, please don’t extend beyond April 30th. Please allow seniors to have a normal graduation. Even one week of school will mean everything to them.


@SteveStaeger @9NEWS Do we think this will extend school closings until then as well?


Electing to read my husband’s manuscript on the Mexican Revolution, which concludes by recounting the smallpox outbreak, food & soap shortages, hoarding, school, church & theater closings, and general isolation in the spring of 1915, wasn’t the best decision I’ve made this week.

@BrianKempGA Since Trump extended the deadline for following the CDC guidelines to April 30, do you plan to extend school closings until that date?


@realDonaldTrump @WhiteHouse Mr. President, with all the school closings, why set up parking lots for triage. I have 2 schools in my area, 1 within 500 yards of a hospital. Another within 1.5 miles. Is this feasible for another option. How many other schools qualify for this possibility.


School closings *may* be extended forcing Japan to face the greatest challenge in its grand 2000+ year history, parenting.


@SER1897 @Fieldandfen It’s one thing to point out the challenges of school closings (I am experiencing them firsthand) but another entirely to suggest parents should get refunds, which is unworkable for a variety of reasons.

@SportsJimShow I didnt see a shortage of cupcakes yet either. Blame the school closings.


@Gekko_Pap School closings have really hurt as have restaurant/food service shut down. Fluid milk demand is actually up with people cooking/eating at home. Plants doing strictly bottling of fluid milk having a hard time keeping up in some areas. Weird markets...


@JamieBQuynn13 Georgia, Muscogee County. Things have changed a bit, school closed, store closing early, restaurant and gym closings. Walmart was busy as usual. To be honest I don't know where we are in this. Seems like people are just figuring things out on our own


@OlympiaWatch @MattHennessey @WSJ @livfinne Let's see how the unions respond to that consequence of school closings and the state having no contingency plans in place.

@davenow @ClaraJeffery @NYGovCuomo When did schools close in NY? School closings ended sports/music/plays etc. and I think made it more real for many.

@CHRISTINEMCALP8 @wxyzdetroit Are you kidding me right now!? The ONLY reason she has taken the majority of the steps she has is because of the Senate. All you would hear her say prior to said steps was that she wasn't even considering taking said step, e.g., School Closings, Shelter in Place. She is Clueless


School closings causing learning loss is an unavoidable problem right now. The solution could be shortening summer vacation, but given the summer heat, the need for money for teachers, and teacher contracts, it's totally impractical. https://t.co/rA5wplyuuN

@GovWhitmer @mieducation When can we expect more information for school closings and the 20-21 budget? I’m not in a rush at all, but I know it was talked about in a recent radio interview.


@LChittka I’m hoping that the school closings put a dent in head lice

@edmodo @KtBkr4 First of all, we thank you for your efforts in facing the disaster of school closings. And I suggeste to increase the utilization of the educational platform, there must be an electronic whiteboard that the teacher uses to explain directly to the students


@ianbremmer @ggreenwald @paulkrugman This is demonstrably false and Glenn should know better. Brazil got hit well after the US but the governors implemented soft quarantines roughly the same time. And while huge sections of the US are business as usual other than school closings, few places in Brazil are


#bettertogether First of all, we thank you for your efforts in facing the disaster of school closings. And he suggested to increase the utilization of the educational platform, there must be an electronic whiteboard that the teacher uses to explain directly to the students


Your first place for information is your state department of education and your local school district, and the U.S. Department of Education’s up-to-date coronavirus information page. But these FAQs will give you a good starting point. https://t.co/tAdk7IcwF9


@enlchicago @upzonenj @YIMBY_Princeton Oh, I see. I guess I was thinking of the school closings. Still, in my neighborhood at least restaurants basically shut down at the same time (or people stayed away)


@holmgrej @upzonenj @YIMBY_Princeton No, you have to count from the official shelter-in-place, which was 3/21/20 at 9pm for NJ. In Chicago, the school, bar, restaurant closings barely made a dent until regular offices were closed.

@GooseWayneTV @realDonaldTrump @CDCgov You're delusional. Obama felt with swine flu and Ebola. Fucking EBOLA!!! No lock downs, no school closings and the market and economy continued to grow. Trump mocked it, lied about it and belittled efforts to curb it. All the way up till stock market crashed. Only then he cared.
