Spikes in teacher depression during the pandemic: Evidence from Virginia early educators

Share
Description:

Using data from over 4,000 early educators working in publicly funded school-based pre-kindergarten programs, child care centers, and family day homes in Virginia, this brief describes changes in the prevalence of depression symptoms relative to pre-pandemic levels. We use two waves of survey data: one from before the pandemic (Spring 2019) and one during the pandemic (Fall 2020) to demonstrate increases in depression rates over time, and document COVID-specific concerns which may have contributed to these changes.
