Experts Explore Education

Education correlates strongly with most important social and economic outcomes such as economic success, health, family stability, and social connections. —Michael Hout, Annual Review of Sociology

In this collection we explore challenges facing educators, students, and society today. The intersection of education and public health is especially relevant in light of the recent global pandemic. Parents, teachers, and administrators must develop new protocols and curriculum to further the education of children, adolescents, and young adults while protecting the safety and well-being of the community.

Our experts review education's impact on society through the lenses of psychology, development, economics, public health, and sociology. How have modern education policies changed lives? How have they not? How will policies change in response to the long-term consequences of COVID-19?
