Associate Name: Takeru Igusa

Funding Source/Period of the Grant: HPC Pilot 02/01/2017 - 02/08/2018


The gap of cognitive development between children of poor and wealthy families has been persistent, despite increasing public investments in early education. A clearer understanding of the drivers of inequality is needed to plan future early education interventions. In this pilot study, we will use system dynamics as a methodological tool to investigate these drivers.
