Researchers Examine Impact of COVID-19 On Education
In March 2020, school districts
across California closed their doors, rapidly adjusting to remote
instruction in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The
challenges associated with the adjustment are unprecedented and
their impacts continue to be felt, even as students have mostly
returns to classrooms.
UC Davis School of Education researchers are particularly
well-equipped to examine and help address these challenges. Below
is a selection of their work unearthing, naming and strategizing
the impact of COVID-19 on education.
