Disasters Can Affect Academic Performance for Years

From The Conversation: Disasters like Hurricane Ian can affect academic performance for years to come. An excerpt:

“One of the most important lessons is that just as it will likely take years to rebuild the infrastructure and homes hit by Hurricane Ian, it could take a similar amount of time to help some children regain a sense of normalcy. My own research – and that of many others –
shows that while children are often resilient in the face of disasters, the effects of trauma can be insidious and linger for years to come.”
