CEHD Assistant Professor Discusses Missed Opportunity for Measuring Pandemic Recovery Efforts

Kenneth A. Shores, assistant professor in the College of Education & Human Development’s School of Education, spoke with St. Louis Post-Dispatch about how pandemic aid offered a rare chance to quickly test which recovery efforts were most effective in helping students recover learning loss due to school closures. 

But, as the article notes, accurately measuring if popular programs or policies have been effective at helping students recover learning lost due to school closures is not easy. Shores notes that researchers may have missed this opportunity.
