New Study Shows Student Struggles

A new state survey shows half of Wisconsin school kids say they’re anxious, and a third say they’re depressed.

The state’s Department of Public Instruction released the results yesterday. They show that about 52 percent of students self-reported ‘significant problems with anxiety.’ The survey also says about 34 percent of students reported feeling sad or hopeless almost every day for more than two weeks in a row. That’s up five percent from the last time the survey asked kids about their feelings before the coronavirus. DPI says the numbers for LGBTQ students are even higher.
