How One EdTech Company Wants to Remove Community Stressors
COVID didn’t just have a physical impact on our population; the longterm mental health effects of mass social isolation are still up in the air. But it’s clear that for students, mental health effects were tangible as they tried to maneuver shifts in learning settings, expectations, and little to no interaction classic support systems.
