Study: Kentucky Students Less Motivated, Depressed After COVID-19


LEXINGTON, Ky. - A study conducted by Kentucky students highlights how their peers are performing amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

Students and the Prichard Committee have been conducting a study to see how Kentucky students viewed life and learning since May. 

The study found that the overwhelming majority of students were more anxious, depressed and less motivated. 

The shift was felt the hardest among poor, working-class, African American, and other minority groups. 

The group will now interview 50 students from across the commonwealth to get a more personalized view of their struggles.
