Bare classrooms and stressed teachers affect kids' mental health

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Stark classrooms and frustrated teachers may impact a child's mental health.

Researchers say first graders are more likely to have emotional or behavioral issues when their classrooms don't have enough resources, teaching materials, or when their teachers feel disrespected and stressed.

The study from the University of Maryland is based on interviews with parents and teachers of more than 10,000 first-graders.
