In a News from Brown article by the University, Assistant Professor Jonathan Collins joined faculty members to offer their analysis and thoughts on what the country can expect on Election Day tomorrow and in the coming weeks.
"We’ve learned a lot from the challenges we’ve faced in 2020, both from a public health perspective and from a racial injustice perspective. But we have a tendency to forget our history. I hope we go into 2021 continuing to use the lessons we learned [in 2020] to move forward and fix what went wrong."
What to expect on Election Day, according to Brown's faculty experts Eight faculty members shared their analysis on what the nation can expect on Election Day and beyond — at the polls, on the streets and potentially in the courts.
News — In The 74, UEP Program Director Kenneth Wong shares his thoughts and research on how states continue to use their Constitutional authority of education to push against President Trump's assaults on equity. "Under our federalist system, states have authority over areas not specifically delegated in the Constitution to the U.S. government, and that includes responsibility for funding and delivering public education. With this decentralized education governance, states have passed laws directly opposing Trump initiatives; individuals and organizations have taken legal actions; and many universities, state education agencies and school districts remained committed to Obama-era policies."
Analysis: How States Use Their Constitutional Authority over Education to Push Back Against Trump Assaults on Equity, Accountability Since his inauguration in January 2017, President Donald Trump has used executive and administrative power to reduce federal oversight of educational equity and accountability. The administration rolled back Obama-era guidance that bolstered the rights of racial minorities, transgender students and....

RESEARCH — Providence Talks, a citywide partnership between the city of Providence and local non-profit service providers, helps develop language environments within homes for young children. Enrolling local 2-30 month old children, it "helps caretakers learn about the importance of speaking with their children and supports them in their ability to improve the language environments within their home." In an evaluation of the initiative, UEP Director Kenneth Wong and Lecturer Crystal Thomas discuss "the innovative design and the citywide scale of Providence Talks" and their key findings.
Between July 30 and August 1, 1237 U.S. adults were polled about the reopening of schools amid the pandemic. The research, co-led by Assistant Professor Jonathan Collins, asked: What do ordinary Americans think about schools reopening? How does race shape these attitudes?
In an article published by The Washington Post's Money Cage blog, Collins shares the findings. "Overall, we find while many citizens have strong reservations about schools reopening, that’s especially true among Black Americans, who also worry that remote instruction will cause Black and Latinx students to fall behind."
Americans overwhelmingly oppose school reopenings, data finds Assistant Professor Jonathan Collins co-authored this article about a study he led that found that the majority of Americans expressed strong opposition to school reopenings.
