The COVID-19 and Equity in Education (CEE) initiative began a new CEE Research Spotlight webinar series this March.

In our first webinar in this series, on March 29, 2023, researchers Kathryn Hill and Meredith Richards, from the NYC Schools Research Alliance and the Simmons School of Education and Human Development at Southern Methodist University, respectively, shared research findings related to students experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The researchers contrasted the contextual issues in New York and Texas for students experiencing homelessness.

Following the presentation, participants engaged in a Q&A session guided by CEE facilitators.

About the Series

Starting in March 2023, we continue our webinar series focusing on creating a space for dialogue among researchers, education leaders, and policymakers to learn from our collective experience in the K-12 education system, specifically in the context of COVID-19 and issues related to equity.
 

About the COVID-19 and Equity in Education Initiative

CEE is jointly funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and AIR’s Equity Initiative. The CEE initiative is creating a broad, in-depth view of how states, districts, and their communities—especially those with higher percentages of Black and Latino students and/or students experiencing poverty—responded to the pandemic's effect on K-12 learning opportunities. The aim is to understand not just community responses to the pandemic, but how the pandemic has changed core assumptions about how the education system operates in the context of community.

Accessibility: We strive to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals to engage and participate fully. To request an accommodation or for inquiries about accessibility, please indicate your needs when you register or contact Carol Felicio.
