Can Intensive Tutoring Reduce School Dropout and Youth Violence in Chicago?

Grant Year: 2015


Jens Ludwig will undertake an experimental evaluation of programs designed to increase academic achievement and lower school drop-out rates of high school aged males from low-income families in Chicago. The evaluation will test the impact of intensive tutoring as well as a program created to develop non-cognitive skills, such as persistence and empathy. The project’s findings will appear in a report and a series of papers.
