A new study shows that remote learning can’t end soon enough.
The CDC’s survey reveals parents and children are experiencing more stress as a result of virtual learning. Parents and children learning virtually reported worse outcomes when tested for stress indicators than those who learned in-person.
CDC officials say this suggests virtual learning "may present more risks" for mental and emotional health. The study also found that virtual-only learners were twice as likely to see a decrease in physical activity.
Social isolation and lack of physical activity are a large problem for people staying home.
