COVID undermined students’ well-being more than we thought | The Hill

“The COVID cult did lasting damage to our kids,” writes the journalist Alex Gutentag. “As a result, the United States is now faced with an academic, social, and psychological disaster that will reverberate through society for years, if not decades, to come.”

Parents know this is true. For example, polling from Echelon Insights reports more than two-thirds (69 percent) of them say they’re worried their child isn’t on track in school — nearly twice as many as the 35 percent who were concerned about that pre-pandemic — and nearly two-thirds (64 percent) also worry about their child’s mental health.

Talk of "mental health" has certainly become fashionable. When I was a boy people were just "browned off" or upset or miffed.

I'm not mocking the children: I feel sorry for all of them, from babes to undergraduates. Do you think it would cheer them up if we were to hang the evil sods who did them so much damage?
