Students walked out of classrooms in protest of not having enough safety measures against covid. Parents threatened school leaders for enforcing their kids to wear masks. Rules and guidelines change on the daily basis based on where, when, and whom you talk to.
Good health and well-being for the growing teens is an age-old challenge in any culture, but never before have they been asked to do so in physical isolation, under the influence of polarized social media, and with a potential consequence at a global scale.
