Overcoming Pandemic Learning Loss: Bringing High-Dosage Tutoring to Students Nationwide

The Aspen Economic Strategy Group (AESG) is hosting an event related to the publication of a new paper by the Education Lab’s faculty co-directors, Dr. Jens Ludwig and Dr. Jon Guryan, titled “Overcoming Pandemic-Induced Learning Loss.”

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.
