In-person learning wasn’t the magic bullet many hoped for. Teens are still suffering.
“Going back to school five days a week with everybody on campus all together, it just wasn’t the answer,” one parent said.
Hailey is not alone. As the U.S. reaches the second anniversary of the pandemic, a growing number of parents and psychiatrists report that a return to in-person learning was not the magic bullet many had hoped it would be for school-age children and that the pandemic has resulted in a host of mental health challenges even for those young people who seemed as recently as a year ago to be faring relatively well.
These findings put a big dent in the militant maskless' claim that online learning was what was causing mental health problems among young people. Turns out that it was the pandemic all along, and returning to in-person learning did not solve these mental health problems. Who could have guessed!
