Youth Impact Featured in Nature Human Behavior

We’ve been thrilled at the overwhelmingly positive response to our publication in the June issue of Nature Human Behavior, one of the world’s leading peer-reviewed scientific journals. Read some of the comments below:

The challenge of mitigating learning loss during the COVID-19 pandemic is crucial, and this paper by Angrist et al. stands out for its efforts to tackle this problem and test an intervention that could potentially be widely implemented.

- Aisha Bradshaw, Senior Editor, Nature Human Behaviour

This is a timely and carefully executed and analysed study. The authors provide evidence of a promising, innovative, replicable, potentially scalable and cost-effective intervention to address the massive educational challenge posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a valuable contribution to the literature, although it remains unclear whether the observed short-term gains persist or wane further into the future.
