A new survey reveals about 4 in 10 parents say their children fell behind in school last year. The national survey, from the Kaiser Family Foundation, showed that kids fell behind in more ways than just academics. Roughly one-third said at least one of their children fell behind in social and emotional skills. About 30 percent claimed at least one of their children suffered from mental health or behavioral problems during the pandemic. The problems appear to have been especially prominent for children who studied remotely for the entire year. Many of those parents told researchers their child struggled to concentrate and complete assignments. This data comes as we start another school year under the influence of COVID-19.
