Since the start of Quarantine last March, there has been a huge downfall in students grades over the last few months.  The downfall of students grades largely happened because of the huge and sudden shift from learning in classrooms, to learning from home and sometimes teaching yourself the material. There needs to be an adjustment to online learning to accommodate students, and students need. 

Students mental health over the past few months of quarantine have become much worse. According to Washington Post writer William Wan, states “Federal agencies and experts warn that a historic wave of mental-health problems is approaching: depression, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder and suicide,” teens brains are some of the most fragile. Teens are used to spending time with friends and family, and going to parties and having fun. Being away from all of that, and being isolated does a number on the growing teen mind.

With the sudden change in the way students learn has caused students to have more and more disadvantages when it comes to learning and being able to retain the information. As Emma Garcia said in her article on epi.com “The crisis-induced delivery of homeschooling without time for planning around children’s learning styles and circumstances means that many children home schooled during the pandemic are not replicating such model and thus not reaping the associated benefits.” As Garcia stated this new style of learning is not really fitting to those who have different learning styles.
