WLWT: Pandemic creates education crisis
Education expert explains far-reaching impact on schools, economy
Mary Boat, the director of the University of Cincinnati's School of Education, was featured on WLWT-TV, Channel 5, discussing the disruption of learning during the pandemic and the effect remote classes will have on school children for years to come.
"We talk a lot about economic recovery after COVID; we need to be talking about educational recovery," said Boat, explaining how the pandemic has expanded an already existing achievement gap between diverse groups of learners.
The UC School of Education is part of the College of Education, Criminal Justice and Human Services.
Boat's primary research focus is on young children with or at risk for disabilities. She has conducted research and published in the areas of social competence in preschool age children with disabilities, program development in teacher education, effective instruction in preschool settings/Head Start and assessment in early childhood.
