New research highlights the adverse effect the COVID-19 pandemic is having on teachers and students across the country–and it also underscores the importance of teacher-student connections.
The Canva National Education Survey: Fall 2020 shows that the new school year, beginning in the middle of a global pandemic, is already taking a toll on students.
Forty-one percent of students are telling their teachers that they are feeling overwhelmed, 39 percent have shared they are feeling disconnected from their peers and school network, 37 percent are experiencing heightened levels of anxiety, 37 percent are feeling isolated, 30 percent are worried about their friends and family, 27 percent are feeling stressed about their home environment and 26 percent are feeling depressed.
