A recent study shows that kids are struggling to learn online since schools swtiched to remote learning two months ago due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The Angus Reid Institute surveyed kids aged 10 to 17 and found that 71 percent used "bored" to describe a way they've been feeling in recent weeks, according to CTV News.

The study found that 75 percent of kids say they are not having trouble following online lessons though 60 percent say they are feeling unmotivated. The study also found that 57 percent said they do not like the learning arrangements.

A grade 7 student in Brantford, Ont., named Preston Sauciukas says it's been hard learning from home.

"It’s really hard to focus because I have siblings and stuff all around the place," he said when speaking to CTV News.

"My mom isn't really a teacher, so she doesn't know much about what I'm doing and when I have to ask her questions usually she's dealing with my brother or sister."

The survey says that what 54 percent of students miss most is their friends.

Students gave a mixed response when they were asked about going back to school. Just 26 percent said they would feel happy about going back, 38 percent said they would feel "okay" and 36 percent said they are not excited to go back.

Stephen Lecce, the Education Minister will likely provide an update on the remaining school year in the next few days.
