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.
