CUBE Conference Presentations

Education policies have helped promote advances in student achievement in the past two decades, but not yet at a level suitable to prepare a U.S. workforce with the skills and knowledge demanded by universities and employers in a global economy. In some urban school districts, more than half of all students will drop out before earning their diploma. American students, more generally, are lagging behind many of our international competitors in college attendance and completion rates. This clinic will examine how exposure to research-tested educational media starting early in life can accelerate children’s skills, while producing enduring economic benefits to society.
