Askwith Education Forum: Planning for an Equitable Recovery

A panel explores new research on the impact of remote and hybrid learning and discusses federal, state, and district strategies to lift student learning and support social-emotional needs.

What is the real impact of the pandemic on student learning? New research from Professor Thomas Kane of the Harvard Graduate School of Education reveals stark consequences of remote and hybrid learning for student achievement in high- and low-income schools, using data from 10,000 schools in 49 states plus the District of Columbia.

The new findings fuel a mandate for comprehensive, equitable, and effective interventions. With a panel of national leaders, we'll explore the research and discuss federal, state, and district strategies to lift student learning. We'll discuss how districts can best use COVID relief funds to meet the need, while simultaneously addressing students' critical social and emotional needs.

Thomas Kane, Walter H. Gale Professor of Education and Economics, HGSE, Faculty Director of the Center for Education Policy Research at Harvard University
