University of Michigan study: Virtual school has overwhelmed parents, students
Researchers at the University of Michigan are sharing results from a survey that supports what many of us already know: Virtual learning early in the coronavirus pandemic placed a serious hardship on American students and parents. About 24% of parents indicated that their child was fearful or anxious and 30% of parents indicated their child was nervous, high strung or tense. However, the pandemic continues as of this writing with students at home enrolled in virtual school. As stated, virtual learning for the fall semester is now well underway in many Michigan school districts. Here at ClickOnDetroit, we want to hear from parents and students about their experiences with this unprecedented situation.
