ISR Insights Speaker Series: Educational Inequalities in the Time of COVID-19
There are many ways that the socioeconomic status and education level of parents relates to the cognitive outcomes of their children, and an achievement gap could be seen when schools return to face-to-face learning. Professor of psychology and research professor at ISR, Pamela Davis-Kean explains that with schools closed, it falls to parents to provide learning opportunities for their children, but many families are unequipped to do so.
ISR consists of five separate but interdependent research centers, each with a particular focus and capabilities.
