Concern about the long-term effect of COVID-19 on academic performance of children everywhere is being reported on the media and in academic journals. The following are some examples:
CBC News: The House with Chris Hall - Generation COVID
"On this week’s show: A special edition of The House examines the impact of COVID-19 on Canada’s youth, as three teens reflect on the consequences of closing schools and a panel of education experts explore how Canada can ensure kids don’t fall behind."
New study examines students’ mental health and COVID-19
"Even before the pandemic, post-secondary students already faced unique stressors, and were vulnerable to mental-health problems.
Now, as the fallout of the pandemic threatens to cause a sustained and unprecedented wave of mental-health issues among students, new research from McMaster’s Faculty of Social Sciences and the World Health Organization aims to understand their experiences, and to help develop solutions."
COVID-19 and Student Well-Being: Stress and Mental Health during Return-to-School
"Best estimates from North American statistics indicate that children and youth represent less than 10% of the SARS-CoV-2 symptomatic infections (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 2020). There has been significant concern, however, about the potential negative impact on children and adolescents of the many societal effects of the pandemic, including school closures, social distancing, and threats to the health of loved ones."
