Jack Jordan_St. Rep.2017In a release from State Representative Jack Jordan (R-Bremen) said, “COVID-19 disrupted many aspects of our lives and the lives of Hoosier students. This session, I am supporting legislation to ensure children who face learning loss due the effects of the pandemic can catch up and get ahead.”

A recent study completed by Stanford’s Center for Research on Education Outcomes shows the average Hoosier student lost 129 days of reading knowledge and 209 days of math knowledge as a result of COVID-19 disruptions.

Jordan said, “By establishing the Student Learning Recovery Grant Program, $150 million could be provided to individuals or organizations to help students who have fallen behind in class, scored below academic standards, or who are at risk of falling behind.”
