Covid-19

CRPE has played a crucial role in researching both the immediate and enduring impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on K-12 education. Our comprehensive studies delve into the challenges posed by the crisis, examining issues such as remote learning, educational equity, and the adaptive responses of school systems.

With a commitment to providing actionable insights, CRPE’s research has not only explored the crisis itself but also extended to the post-Covid landscape. Our work in this realm focuses on understanding how schools and districts are navigating the evolving educational dynamics, emphasizing recovery strategies, shifts in learning models, and the long-term implications for educational equity.

By analyzing the complexities of both the pandemic and the subsequent educational aftermath, CRPE aims to inform decision-makers, educators, and stakeholders with evidence-based recommendations. The overarching goal is to contribute to the development of resilient, equitable, and innovative education systems for the future.
