Disproportionate Learning Disparities Among Student of Color During the COVID-19 Pandemic

This presentation will address initial research on the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on students of color in K-12 education. An important question as COVID-19 has occurred is how it has impacted various diverse communities in many areas, such as health, employment, and education. There is much variability in the United States in the resources available to various communities to support education, and as the pandemic hit it is possible that communities and school districts with different resources impacted the learning experiences of students. Reports of communities of color facing higher exposure and death to the COVID-19 pandemic suggests that communities that faced health disparities prior to the COVID-19 pandemic will also face disproportioned health disparities (Hopper et al., 2020). It is also possible that students of color who faced structural inequalities prior to the pandemic will face higher rates of school disengagement due to the disparities amplified by the pandemic (Jones et al., 2021). For example, Haderlein and colleagues (2021) explain that there is a difference in access to technology, instruction, instructional supports, services, and preferences for in-person learning among various groups (race/ethnicity, income, urbanicity, partisanship, and grade level). This presentation will provide an overview of what we have learned of the effects of the pandemic and how it has impacted the school experiences and learning for low-income students of color in K-12 education.
