This talk will discuss the landscape of data on COVID in schools during the pandemic and research on the consequences of school closures. It will delve into why it was so difficult to get reliable data on these topics and detail the process of creating a usable empirical dataset on schools from disparate sources. The talk will also cover what we have learned so far about the consequences of school closures in the US during the COVID-19 pandemic.
