ISR Insights Speaker Series Beyond the Pandemic: Challenges and Opportunities for Changes in Education Pam Davis-Kean (Research Affiliate, PSC; Research Professor, SRC) Wednesday, May 12 at 1pm EDT

Wednesday, May 12 

What will parents, educators, and researchers need to consider regarding achievement and learning gains as children are likely to return to in-person schooling in Fall 2021? Dr. Pamela Davis-Kean will discuss her research on how homeschooling was discussed on social media, the issues related to “holding back” or repeating a grade in primary school, and how new proposed policies for free community college may be important for helping those in secondary education get extra time to develop skills for entry into a four-year college.
