A new study of over 1,000 students found that many young teens are feeling less anxiety, not more, during remote learning due to the pandemic.
The study found that 54 percent of 13- to 14-year-old girls were at risk of anxiety prior to the pandemic, but that figure dropped by 10 percent during lockdown.
That figure dropped from 26 percent to 18 percent for boys in the same age group as well.
Many students also reported feeling a greater connection to their schools with increased opportunities to talk with their teachers.

A group of researchers in South West England suspected that young teens who were remote schooling due to the COVID-19 pandemic might be feeling more anxiety.
They reasoned that many teens would be feeling worried about friends and family becoming ill. Also, they would have less social support due to being isolated at home.
When they conducted a survey, however, what they found was surprising to them: the students were actually experiencing less anxiety.
In addition, they were experiencing other benefits, such as a greater feeling of well-being and more connection to their schools.
