A major goal of REDY is to continually promote the presence of research on education at Duke University. REDY is partnering with scholars throughout the Duke University community who study education. The research focus within REDY is broad and encompasses many aspects of children’s schooling and development. Studies focus on disparities in achievement by race, class, and gender, the role of parents and teachers in schools, determinants of educational outcomes, and the implications of educational factors for various life-chance outcomes for both children and young adults.
