As Americans become increasingly concerned about the effect of virtual learning on students' academic progress, the share saying schools should give a lot of consideration to the risk reopening poses to teachers and students is shrinking.

But the findings from a new survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, which polled more than 10,000 Americans on their views about the timing and the factors that should be considered in reopening K-12 schools, also found that nearly 60% still say schools that don't currently offer in-person learning due to the pandemic should remain virtual until teachers have received the coronavirus vaccine.

As the school reopening debate rages on – quickly becoming among the most politicized issues spiraling out of the pandemic – the survey results reflect the shifting, complicated and nuanced nature of the controversial topic.
