Yihua Hong awarded Spencer Foundation grant

Congratulations to Yihua Hong, Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Comparative Human Development, for receiving a one-year research grant from the Spencer Foundation in the amount of $50,000 in support of her research project entitled "Making Sense of the 'Zero' Effect of the Comprehensive Teacher Induction Programs". The project seeks to understand the puzzling findings from a randomized experiment by investigating possible mediation mechanisms that may explain why some prominent teacher induction programs failed to produce an impact on beginning teachers’ instructional practices.
