The pandemic has made it more challenging for students who are struggling with mental health needs to find support at school—even when adults know they exist. A new nationally representative survey conducted by the EdWeek Research Center finds low-income students and Black students were more likely than their wealthy or white peers to say that their school no longer offered mental health services after the pandemic. Moreover, while an overwhelming majority of educators at both remote and in-person school reported bullying has declined since the pandemic, less than half of remote students and roughly 1 in 4 in-person and hybrid-learning students say there is less bullying and harassment since the pandemic began.
Join Education Week and the EdWeek Research Center as we dig into the data and discuss the implications for students, teachers, and school leaders.
