New research by Doug Staiger and Co-authors Featured in NYTimes

Math, reading and history scores from the past three years show that students learned far less during the pandemic than was typical in previous years. By the spring of 2022, according to new research, the average student was half a year behind in math and a third of a year behind in reading. This New York Times Op-ed argues that, based on new research by Prof. Staiger and co-authors, schools need to find ways to address the gap in learning that was caused by the pandemic, especially in school districts where the pandemic had a more severe affect on the community.
