Going Beyond Barriers to Advance Educational Equity

Astronaut

While some level of learning loss may be inevitable, with the proper tools, you can design a strategy that will get your students back on track. But keep in mind, there is no simple, one-and-done solution. To successfully combat learning loss, you must take the following steps:

  1. accurately assess your students’ current level of comprehension
  2. employ an effective curriculum during the summer months and throughout the school year
  3. ensure an equitable and supportive experience for all students
  4. equip teachers with the instructional techniques needed to address these challenges

If you’re searching for resources that will help you implement any of the steps listed above, we can help. Read on to learn how STEMscopes can support you in solving student learning loss.

Understanding HR133

By Richard Kingham

04/05/2021

The effects of the pandemic have left almost no one untouched, and education is one area in particular that has experienced tremendous hardship. In December 2020, the former administration signed into effect a $900 billion stimulus package that includes section H.R. 133, which provides $70 billion to help public and private schools recover from the pandemic. This bill is of paramount importance for anybody with skin in the education game (which is all of us), so we’ve provided an overview of how H.R. 133 works.

Learning Loss and Its Impact on Math Education

By Richard Kingham

03/15/2021

What is learning loss? While we gained more time at home with family, “loss” is one word that aptly characterizes the COVID‑19 pandemic: loss of life, health, jobs, travel opportunities, learning. “Learning loss” has, in fact, become a recognizable phenomenon within education. It refers to students stagnating or even regressing in their schooling due to uncontrollable circumstances, such as the COVID‑19 pandemic. Students across the country are falling behind at precipitous rates.

Focusing on Social and Emotional Learning: Making a Pandemic Comeback

By Lesly Gregory

03/22/2021

The coronavirus pandemic has changed a lot for students across the country. They’ve spent time learning virtually, worked independently more often, and seen less consistency as they’ve moved in and out of classrooms. While its impact on academics remains a constant conversation, there are other developmental milestones to watch out for as we get closer and closer to normalcy. One of the areas to watch involves students’ social and emotional learning (SEL).

COVID Funding For K‑12 Education

By Clare Agostinelli

02/09/2021

To date the federal government has designated funding for COVID-19-related expenses through two major federal bills intended to provide relief to all U.S. states and territories: the CARES Act and HR133/ESSER. A substantial portion of each type of funding is available to education, both K-12 and higher education, through the state, territory, tribal, and in some cases individual city government. Most school districts are eligible for this funding, some of which can be used for programs like STEMscopes.
