Given the magnitude of the recent recession, it is important to understand the effects of large-scale job losses on children and their educational outcomes. Has the economic downturn had an effect on all children, or just the children who experience parental job loss? Presenter Elizabeth Ananat discusses the important implications of the recession for children and school accountability schemes.
In addition to presenting a scholarly talk, Dr. Ananat will be available for individual and group meetings with faculty and students; please contact Adrienne for availability.
