Back in School: Addressing the Wellbeing of Students in the Wake of COVID19

Back in School

How has COVID-19 affected students’ learning and mental health?

About this event
The Forum for Children’s Well-Being will host a virtual public workshop over the course of three days -- May 20, 25, and 27th -- focusing on the effects of COVID-19 on the intersection of students’ learning and mental health. It will also explore the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on specific populations, including children of color, children with special health care needs and learning difficulties, and children living in poverty. The workshop will feature lived experience perspectives and expert presentations, as well as discussions on the intersection of learning loss, mental health, and social emotional learning.

This workshop is hosted in conjunction with the Societal Experts Action Network (SEAN), an activity of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine supported by the National Science Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. SEAN is a network of leading individuals and institutions in the social, behavioral, and economic sciences that provides actionable responses to urgent policy questions.
