Ginny Gentles on May's Policy Focus: Learning Loss
Ginny Gentles joins the podcast to discuss this month’s policy focus: Learning Loss. We explore how the lowest-risk demographic — children — have struggled throughout the pandemic because of school closures and remote learning. We discuss the learning loss data, and how this has impacted not only children’s mental health but also their ability to thrive in college and the workforce.
