Dear Teachers: 

For months, we’ve been hearing reports of how pandemic isolation and remote learning has deeply affected day-day classroom activities. Children and teens are having difficulty sharing, standing in line, bullying more frequently, experiencing mental health issues and dramatic academic losses. 

We want to get a sense of what you’ve been witnessing in your classrooms: What skills, typical of your students’ age group, are now causing them to struggle socially, emotionally and academically? And how are you adapting, supporting students? 

Please take a moment to fill out our brief survey below. Your responses will help our journalists better report on how the pandemic is continuing to affect children’s development.

If you can’t see the survey, please click here.
