Domestic Public Policy

Jens Ludwig

Grant Year: 2016

Jens Ludwig will undertake an experimental evaluation of programs designed to increase academic achievement and lower school dropout 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 noncognitive skills, such as persistence and empathy. The project’s findings will appear in a report and a series of papers.
