This event builds on the recent release of a paper commissioned by the Aspen Economic Strategy Group for its 2023 policy volume, “Building a More Resilient US Economy.” In this paper, the authors detail the urgent, once-in-a-century public education crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and propose policy solutions to help schools scale proven strategies like high-dosage tutoring and close learning gaps.

Kearney, Director of the Aspen Economic Strategy Group, and will include panelists Dr. Jens Ludwig, Co-Director of the University of Chicago Education Lab, Dr. Nat Malkus, Senior Fellow and Deputy Director, Education Policy Studies at American Enterprise Institute, and Dr. Nakia Towns, Chief Operating Officer at Accelerate – The National Collaborative for Accelerated Learning.
