RMC Senior Research Scientist Dr. Chris King co-authored several two-generation (2Gen) policy briefs recently released by Ascend at the Aspen Institute. Chris, along with researchers from Northwestern University, Columbia University, New York University, Temple University, and Oklahoma State University-Tulsa, partnered with Ascend to release new findings from long-term studies of CareerAdvance®, a program developed and run by the Community Action Project of Tulsa County (CAP).
The first brief, an impact analysis, explores the effects of a 2Gen program on low-income parents’ education, employment, and psychological well-being.
The second brief, a new study, explores the effects of a 2Gen program on children’s outcomes in Head Start.
*The Ray Marshall Center has had an ongoing partnership with CAP Tulsa and Northwestern University (as well as partners at NYU and Columbia) to evaluate a sectoral, career pathway workforce strategy for the parents of young children in high-quality early childhood education in Tulsa. Center researchers led a team that designed the strategy in 2008-2009. You can view the details of the partnership here.
