Ethan Hutt, Long-Term Relationships: How Longitudinal Datasets Shaped Our Views of Educational Attainment, Inequality, and the American School System

This free talk will explore the origins and implications of talking about educational achievement—and educational equity—in national terms focusing specifically on Cold War efforts by the federal government to inform itself about the state of American children. The talk argues that the legacy of these Cold War decisions has had an important, but overlooked, impact on how we think about, research, and reform our nation’s schools. Part of the “Policy Goes to School Series.”
