The COVID-19 and Equity in Education Technical Working Group

The COVID Equity in Education Technical Working Group (TWG) includes national experts dedicated to addressing inequities, especially in communities serving Black and Latino students and/or students experiencing poverty. TWG members:

  • Advise and support the team to develop innovative, rigorous approaches to engaging communities in research;
  • Support the development of an annual public research agenda in collaboration with community partners and researchers;
  • Engage emerging researchers and scholars to use resources from the study in their research; and
  • Communicate and share information about the project to a wider audience.
