Greg J. Duncan

Distinguished Professor at the School of Education, University of California, Irvine

Duncan will study a number of programs that aim to increase the academic achievement of low-income children and youth. He will examine whether these interventions remain effective in the long run, and whether they help restore some of the social mobility that has been lost over the past several decades. He will develop a conceptual framework that identifies the early-childhood environments and practices that help youth develop skills, make the most of educational opportunities, and avoid risky behaviors later in life.
