Education Lab As Schools Grapple with Post-Pandemic Learning Loss, University of Chicago Education Lab Leads $18 Million Project to Scale “High Dosage” Tutoring, Accelerate Student Learning
The University of Chicago Education Lab is leading a cutting-edge research project to determine how the nation's schools can close student achievement gaps and overcome pandemic-era learning loss. The multi-year project will help school districts across the country effectively scale "high-dosage" tutoring — an intervention proven to double or triple the amount of learning in a single academic year. The Education Lab will work alongside MDRC and newly-formed nonprofit Accelerate to engage thousands of students in school districts nationwide. This work is supported by an $18 million donation from America Achieves, Citadel Founder and CEO Ken Griffin, and Arnold Ventures.
