In the wake of the pandemic, millions of students are behind and the demand for tutoring is skyrocketing
The COVID-19 pandemic created a crisis in education that our society has never experienced before. The closure of schools and the transition to virtual learning have impacted millions of students in a negative way. Students of all ages are behind – and parents are understandably worried.
According to the Education Trust, nine out of 10 parents say that they’re worried about their children falling behind due to coronavirus-related school closures, and eight out of 10 say that their children are experiencing heightened stress levels.
News outlets in California, Texas, Florida and other states are reporting that students are falling through the cracks, scores are dropping, levels of engagement have never been lower, and teachers are stressed and struggling with the new normal.
USA Today published an article entitled, “Students are falling behind in online school. Where’s the COVID-19 ‘disaster plan’ to catch them up?” which details just how dire the situation is across the country.
“Parents are afraid their kids are falling behind, and they don’t know what the solution is,” the outlet reports. “They’re looking for leadership. They’re looking for help.”
