ISR Insights Speaker Series – The Kids are Not All Right: Educational Inequalities in the Time of COVID-19

May 14, 2020

ANN ARBOR – ISR Insights Speaker Series will be a continuing series focusing on the research happening at ISR.

Pamela Davis-Kean

The first speaker in this webinar series is Dr. Pam Davis-Kean, Professor of Psychology and Research Professor at ISR. In her talk, she discusses the following: With schools closed due to the COVID19 virus, the teaching and learning environments for children have now merged into one place–the home. With schools being the “great equalizer” for education opportunities, what does it mean for families to provide assistance and much of the teaching during the quarantine and what challenges will schools face if they are able to open in the fall? Dr. Davis-Kean discusses her research on the inequalities in educational opportunities and what that means for families, schools, and children as this unprecedented crisis is potentially increasing achievement gaps across the country.
