A Quarter of Surveyed Kids Suffering Emotional Issues

March 4, 2009

A large number of elementary school students are suffering emotional disturbances, a study released yesterday said. 

“Our survey conducted last May on a total of 4,107 first-year students in 26 elementary schools across the city [of Goyang] has found that 993, or 24.2 percent, can be classified as members of the “high-risk” group susceptible to mental troubles like autism or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder,” the city government said yesterday. 

The survey was conducted as part of Goyang’s project to promote “healthy schools”.  The Goyang Office of Education asked the Korea Institute for Children’s Social Development to conduct the survey.
