The COVID-19 pandemic—and the social distancing measures that have been implemented in response—has caused unparalleled disruptions to the daily routines of school-age children and adolescents. With the closures of schools and the move to distance learning, many of them are now at greater risk of not finishing their education, suffering from mental illness, falling into poverty, or worse. In this episode of Social Impact LIVE, host Richard Hara (bio) sits down with two experts in school social work, Cindy Bautista-Thomas (bio) and Jenna Tutjer (bio), to assess the disproportionate burden that is likely to fall on our most vulnerable children and adolescents. They will also discuss what kinds of resources social workers could marshal to help mitigate the effects of this disruption.
