Stress, School, and Self-Care: 'COVID-19 Highlights Inequities, Mental Health Challenges, Systemic Needs, and Possible Solutions' [open pdf - 0B]
From the Introduction: "'In 2020, as we shelter in place as a result of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], stress, anxiety, uncertainty, and fears about our future are high. School communities are impacted not only by fears of the contagion but also by broad, rapid shifts they are making to deliver equitable remote learning services as seamlessly as possible. Educators, students, and families are adjusting to the ubiquitous 2020 version of home schooling as parents balance becoming surrogate teachers while attempting to work their normal jobs--sometimes feeling inadequate in both roles. Some families have thrived given the chance to slow down, stay home, and spend more time forming deeper connections with one another. Others have become further overwhelmed and stressed by the sudden collision of school, work, and home, uncertain how best to balance it all.'"
