The following article, Virtual Education Can Be Devastating to A Kid’s Mental & Physical Health, Per CDC Study, was first published on Flag And Cross.
If you have school-aged children or attend school yourself, there’s more than a decent chance that at least some of your classes have been moved online. At first, it was probably fun to a lot of younger kids – no school, wooo!!!.
The thing is: it might not be all that good for you.
And this is coming from the CDC, an outlet the radical left loves.
From The Daily Wire:
A new CDC study released last week shows that virtual learning has potentially harmful effects on children. The CDC states that the results of the research “suggest that virtual instruction might present more risks than does in-person instruction related to child and parental mental and emotional health and some health-supporting behaviors.”
Virtual instruction has been used by many institutions of learning since the start of the pandemic forced school closures last year. The research states that in a “probability-based survey of parents of children aged 5–12 years, 45.7% reported that their children received virtual instruction only, 30.9% in-person only, and 23.4% combined virtual and in-person instruction.” The study also showed that children of racial minorities are more likely to be enrolled in online schooling. It states, “Virtual instruction was also more commonly reported by Hispanic parents (65.9%), non-Hispanic other/multiracial parents (64.0%), and non-Hispanic Black parents (54.9%) than by non-Hispanic White parents (31.9%).”
Parents of children in virtual instruction or a combination of in-person and virtual instruction were more likely than parents of children who had in-person instruction to say that their children experienced decreased physical activity, spent less time outdoors, spent less time with friends in-person or in a virtual format, and reported worsened mental or emotional health.
