How Can the Effect of Covid-19 on Child Abuse Rates Help Identify the Root Causes of Child Abuse?
This research project is aimed to determine the root causes of child abuse during Covid-19. CoronaVirus has said to shatter the system that protects children, leading researchers to investigate whether child abuse cases across the USA have dropped or gone down. Research studies show that child abuse cases that get reported have significantly gone down due to lockdown and children’s safety is at higher risk. This research also aims to answer the question, “How can the effect of Covid-19 on child abuse rates help identify the root causes of child abuse?” Perhaps a study which investigates child abuse from March 2020 through December 2020 could help students, teachers or parents gain a better understanding of what child abuse actually is and what the main causes are.
The AAR program is a unique opportunity for Palo Alto Unified School District students, in grades 10-12, to engage in original research in an area of their choosing. Students are paired with mentors who are experts in the field of the student's choosing.
