Joshua Goodman details the widespread variation in how families responded when K-12 education moved on-line
The COVID-19 pandemic led primary and secondary schools across the US to close their doors and shift to on-line learning in March 2020. Families scrambled to find ways to support their children's learning. Research Associate Joshua Goodman, in a joint study (27555) with Andrew Bacher-Hicks and Christine Mulhern, finds substantial geographic variation in the intensity of search for on-line educational resources. The jump in search activity was greatest in high-income urban areas and in places with excellent internet access. Goodman summarizes these findings, and their implications in the short video below.
