Judge Jeanine Reveals How Lockdowns Have Hurt Children

(FreedomBeacon.com)- One of Judge Jeanine’s most moving reports of her career just broke, according to iOTWreport.

Jeanine talked about how children across America perform poorly on tests after COVID-19 lockdowns. Conservatives made an effort to warn that lockdowns would be bad for kids. It now seems that we were right all along.

As public school pupils struggle academically, Judge Jeanine Pirro, a co-host on Fox News, blasted Randi Weingarten, the leader of the second-largest teachers union, for pushing for the closure of COVID schools.

Pirro declared that the unions wanted the schools shut down while the parents protested and demanded their opening. Because they wanted their schools to be open, Virginians voted for Youngkin. The left and the unions supported the teachers’ desire to close the schools. Voters knew this, and the left paid the price.

There can be no dissent. No matter how hard the Biden administration and Randi Weingarten attempt to erase the past and rewrite history. Our children have suffered greatly at their hands.

COVID ruined our health, but its mental effects on our children are still being felt to a much greater extent.

The National Center for Education Statistics reports that, compared to 2020, the average reading score fell five points on a scale of 500.

On average, math scores dropped by seven points for the first time ever.

7,400 9-year-olds were tested as opposed to the early 2020 cohort before the epidemic halted education. After two years, the NCES examined long-term trends to assess COVID’s effects.

The 10th, 25th, 50th, 75th, and 90th percentile measure student growth. The reading and math five percentiles both fell in 2022.

Students already having difficulty with the material performed worse because they had higher substantial drop rates than other students. The 10th percentile fell by 12 points in math and by 10 points in reading. The 90th percentile pupils’ scores in math and reading decreased three points between 2020 and 2022.

According to the NCES, white kids’ arithmetic scores rose five points while Black students’ scores fell 13 points. Thirty-three points were added to the white-black scoring differential. 2020: A 25-point differenceComparedred to poorer students below the 25th percentile, certain students at or above the 75th percentile had higher access to a computer or laptop “always,” a quiet place to work, and a teacher available “every day or virtually every day.”

Reading scores did not increase until the 1990s, whereas math scores have increased since the early 1970s. Before this pandemic-related decline, both subjects showed improvement between the late 1990s and the early 2000s.
