Federal Pandemic Relief and Academic Recovery

From the report: "In sum, our results imply that the federal pandemic relief contributed to academic recovery during the 2022-23 school year, and that the impacts were in line with what would have been expected from prior research. Because the federal relief dollars were disproportionately targeted at low-income districts, they are contributing to narrowing the gaps which widened during the pandemic. We close by discussing ways that any additional aid—such as from states—could be structured to yield larger impacts on student achievement and close the remaining gaps."
