COVID-19 shut down Oregon schools in March 2020, but that’s not all the pandemic interrupted.
Birthdays. Band concerts. Seeing family. Parents’ jobs.
For the Class of 2025, being stuck at home means boredom, frustration, and loneliness - not to mention the fear and anxiety that comes with living through a global pandemic.
“Class Of 2025″ is a six-episode podcast from Oregon Public Broadcasting, hosted and produced by OPB’s Elizabeth Miller with editing and producing by Rob Manning and Elyssa Dudley. Episodes are available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, the NPR One app, and at opb.org.
The Class Of 2025 podcast was made possible with support from the Education Writers’ Association Reporting Fellowship.
