Another danger for kids in the age of COVID: Failing grades
March 31, 2021
(Reuters) - Like millions of American children, Brody Cotton has not seen the inside of a classroom in more than a year.
As the COVID-19 pandemic left him navigating 7th grade from his couch in Carlsbad, California, Brody’s grades dropped from As and Bs to a D and two Fs last semester.
One of the Fs was in a “design and modeling” elective that would have entailed hands-on 3D printing projects in the classroom but became popsicle stick models at home.
