The Work and Why it Matters
Nationwide, students are experiencing a significant interruption in their formal education due to COVID-19 and resulting extended school closures. While educators and students alike have many unprecedented challenges to overcome this upcoming school year, educators report that their top concern is students falling behind in math. This concern is heightened for educators in high-poverty districts who teach predominantly black or Latinx students.
Now more than ever, we need talented, caring, and capable people, committed to supporting our students in their academic and social development. Finding academic interventions that address inequities that historically underserved students face is one of our nation’s most urgent challenges.
