Vulnerable & Special Education Students, Rise in Dropouts

As schools across the world face indefinite closures due to COVID-19 concerns, students, parents and teachers all face challenges as they adjust to remote learning.

These challenges leave leading educational experts concerned that students living at home or in unstable environments or poverty will miss assignments and hurt their educational development. Studies show that high school students who miss at least three days a month of school are seven times more likely to drop out before graduating. These same students are in turn said to live nine years less than their peers.

Among the most vulnerable students at this period in time are the more than six million special education students across the United States. Without the rigorous schooling and therapy that they need, these students face a lifetime of challenges.

Great article. I also think that students need to be supported so that they feel more confident. That is why I am convinced that education should be accessible to everyone, and online educational services help to realize this idea. Therefore, I constantly use residency lor writing service. They allow people from different countries and sociocultural environments to learn and exchange knowledge. This is truly an amazing tool for personal and professional growth.
