Virtual Event: Using Model Estimates of Poverty in Schools – Aug 25

Posted by Urban Institute on August 23, 2022

Eligibility for free and reduced-price lunch is not always the most reliable measure for comparing school-level economic need because these measures often vary by state and across time. A new, Urban-created measure—Model Estimates of Poverty in Schools—estimates the school-level share of students from households with incomes at or below the federal poverty level between fall 2013 and fall 2018. Join Urban Institute experts as they provide an opportunity to learn about the challenges of using free and reduced-price lunch measures, explain how and how not to use the new poverty in schools measure, and demonstrate how to access the tool and explore the data in a hands-on workshop.

This event will take place Thursday, August 25, 3:00-4:00 PM.
