Pandemic Prompts Historic Decline in Student Achievement on Nation’s Report Card

As grim as the declines in math and reading are, they were also widely expected given the academic setbacks as a result of interrupted learning during the coronavirus pandemic.

A Historic Decline in Student Progress

An overwhelming majority of states saw significant score declines among fourth- and eighth-graders in math and reading between 2019 and 2022, with students posting the largest score declines ever recorded in math, according to new federal data that provides the most comprehensive evaluation to date of the impact of the pandemic on academic achievement.

“The results show the profound toll on student learning during the pandemic, as the size and scope of the declines are the largest ever in mathematics,” said Peggy Carr, commissioner of the National Center for Education Statistics, the research arm of the Education Department.

“It gives us our clearest picture yet of the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the academic achievement and the well-being of our students, our teachers and our schools,” she said. “We know that the pandemic affected everyone, and many people predicted that when we measured student achievement this year compared to what we saw prior to the pandemic that the results would reflect the historic disruptions to school and our day-to-day lives.”

The results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, also known as NAEP or “The Nation’s Report Card,” offers the most comprehensive assessment of the state of student learning coming out of the height of the pandemic. The results reflect what U.S. students in fourth and eighth grade know and can do using a common measure of student achievement across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Department of Defense Schools, Puerto Rico and 26 large urban districts that volunteered to participate in the assessment.

Nationally, the average math score for fourth-graders fell 5 points since 2019, while the score for eighth-graders dropped 8 points. In reading, average scores for both grades fell 3 points.

“These mathematics results are historic,” Carr said. “They are the largest declines in mathematics that we have observed in the entire history of this assessment.”

In addition, the percentage of students below the “basic” level – the lowest level of academic achievement – grew. In math, 25% of fourth graders were below the basic level in 2022 and 38% of eighth graders were below the NAEP basic level. In reading, the percentage of students below the NAEP basic increased by 3 percentage points in both grades.

But results varied dramatically across states, with Delaware, Oklahoma and West Virginia posting some of the biggest academic setbacks, as well as across regions of the country, with the Northeast, a region of the country where districts tended to stay remote learning longer, posting some of the most significant score drops.

Carr cautioned against comparing the amount of time states and districts remained in remote learning and their math and reading scores, underscoring that remote learning looked different across the U.S., with various factors affecting the quality of virtual instruction.

“There’s nothing in this data that says we can draw a straight line between the time stamp and remote learning in and of itself and student achievement,” she said. “There’s nothing in this data that tells us that there’s a measurable difference in the performance of states and districts based solely on how long schools were closed.”

Most concerning, however, were the gaps between Black and Hispanic students and white students, between students from low-income families and those from more well-resourced families and between students with disabilities and English learners and their peers – gaps that have long existed but were deepened during the pandemic.

“I want to be very clear: The results of today’s nation’s report card are appalling and unacceptable,” Education Secretary Miguel Cardona told reporters. “They are a reminder of the impact this pandemic had on our learners and the important work we must do now for our students. This is a moment of truth for education. How we respond to this is how we determine not only our recovery but our nation’s standing in the world.”

As grim as the documented declines in math and reading are, they were also widely expected given the significant academic setbacks that have been documented over the last two years as a result of interrupted learning during the coronavirus pandemic.

Last month, researchers at NCES released a snapshot of federal data for 9-year-olds – the first report that used a nationally representative sample of students and compared academic achievement from before the coronavirus pandemic to now. It showed unprecedented drops in math and reading scores and the largest setbacks for students in more than half a century.

That report showed average math scores declined 7 points since 2020, with the lowest performing students posting a 12-point decline compared to the highest-achieving students, who posted just a 3-point decline. Meanwhile, average reading scores declined 5 points from 2020 to 2022, with the lowest-performing students posting a 10-point decline compared to the highest achieving students, who posted just a 2-point decline. Essentially, NCES researchers concluded, students are performing at a level last seen two decades ago.

At the time, Carr called the results “some of the largest declines we have observed in a single assessment cycle in 50 years.”

Now, the release of The Nation's Report Card, which includes results from a much larger student population, confirms many school leaders’ worst fears and highlights how devastating school disruptions have been, particularly for those already the furthest behind.

Learning Gaps Deepened

The pandemic caused scores to drop for every racial, economic and demographic student subgroups, including those that tend to withstand disruptions more easily, like white students from upper- and middle-class families.

But the new data showed – as it often does – that Black and Hispanic students tended to incur steeper declines, particularly in fourth-grade math, where they experienced a 7 point drop compared to white students, whose scores dropped by an average of 3 points. And while their declines weren’t significantly different from white students in other grade-subject combinations, they started from lower levels of academic achievement, meaning many more fell into the basic or below basic level of understanding than did their white peers.

The same is true when it comes to comparing students from low-income families and those with disabilities, both of whose scores dropped the same amount or even less than students with more resources or those without disabilities.

The Best Cartoons on Education

Notably, the report results provide the first significant examination of how the country’s 8 million students with disabilities fared during the pandemic.

Until now, education policy experts knew very little about their academic progress – and still know very little about their social progress. According to the Center for Reinventing Public Education, which has been advocating for better data collection for students with disabilities, less than a third of the most rigorous analyses on the pandemic’s impact on students broke out outcomes for this group of students.

It was assumed – correctly, as the new data from the Nation’s Report Card confirms – that they’re academic setbacks were particularly severe due to the fact that many remained out of school longer than their peers, did not receive the special-needs services they require for learning or the compensatory services they’re eligible for under federal law.

Moreover, their recovery has been hampered by a lack of special education teachers, forcing schools to utilize underqualified educators instead.

Urban school districts, which generally remained in remote learning the longest due to a combination of factors, including community transmission and the increased vulnerability of their communities, posted some of the biggest declines in math scores but showed less of a downward trajectory in reading scores.

Out of the 26 urban school districts that participated in the assessments, all but three experienced statistically significant declines greater than the national average in fourth-grade math and all but four did in eighth-grade math.

Students in Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland and the nation’s capital, along with Shelby County in Tennessee, which includes Memphis, and Charlotte, North Carolina, experienced some of the biggest declines in both subjects, with close to half of the 26 participating urban school districts posting double-digit declines in at least one grade-subject combination.

The performance of Cleveland fourth-graders was particularly troubling, sliding 15 points in math and 16 points in reading. Math scores for fourth-graders in Baltimore also declined by 15 points.

“Cleveland is one of those areas that had a perfect storm moving in the wrong direction,” Carr said. “The pandemic was still raging there right before we went into the schools to collect data there.”

Political Ramifications

The sobering results come just two weeks ahead of the pivotal midterm elections. While education was expected to be a top issue driving voters to the polls – 2021’s off-year election victory for Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin of Virginia gave GOP candidates a prescient playbook for how to bend pandemic schooling into a winning issue – it’s since taken a far back seat to issues like abortion, crime and inflation.

Even among parents of children in K-12 schools, just 14% named education when asked to choose the top two issues most important to them in deciding how to vote, according to a poll released last week by the National Parents Union.

Still, the results are the latest blow to a public education system in disarray – one that’s struggling to beat back massive drops in enrollments, to stave off record-setting absenteeism and to recruit new educators into a workforce defined by low morale and even lower pay.

Republicans have been effective in capitalizing on such challenges, especially in GOP-controlled states where they’ve significantly expanded private school vouchers and tax credit scholarship programs over the last two years. The pronounced drops in proficiency – especially in the Northeast, where schools generally stuck with remote learning longer and scores dropped the most – are sure to be their latest round of ammunition.

Cardona was adamant that the results be a rallying cry for local, state and national leaders to double down on their efforts to support learning recovery.

“We need to continue to approach the task of catching all of our students up with the urgency that this issue warrants,” he said. “We must redouble our efforts to accelerate student recovery. That means leveraging the resources and funding that President Biden has made available to schools across the country.”

“If looking at these outcomes doesn't make us want to double down on system-wide academic recovery and use federal funds to provide more opportunities for students, if this doesn’t make you fired up to raise the bar in education, you're in the wrong profession,” he said.

The federal government provided $190 billion through three tranches of emergency aid in an effort to help the U.S. public school system recover from the coronavirus pandemic. But K-12 funding provided through the American Rescue Plan – the most recent aid package – only requires districts to spend 20% on academic recovery.

An analysis from FutureEd , an education policy organization housed at Georgetown University, found that school districts are poised to spend roughly $30 billion on staffing, $27 billion on academic recovery and $15 billion on improvements to facilities.

“We have to do more and we have to spend more and we have to approach that in a more urgent way,” said Roberto Rodriguez, the assistant secretary in the Office of Planning, Evaluation and Policy Development at the Education Department, who spoke to reporters ahead of the official release. “This is the moment for us to go all in on the resources and strategies we need to help our students accelerate progress.”

New research shows that the price tag of recovering academic setbacks alone could be upward of $700 billion – a figure that neither Congress, state or local lawmakers are poised to secure. The Gates Foundation announced last week that it is set to fund $1.1 billion in K-12 math initiatives over the next four years, focusing 100% of its elementary and secondary education budget from now until 2026 on driving math improvements. But philanthropy alone can’t make a dent in such a massive need.

Notably, policymakers have raised concerns that the three tranches of federal aid funneled to states in 2020 and 2021 through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund, or ESSER, were likely not distributed to places with the greatest learning loss.

As U.S. News has previously reported , the emergency aid was allocated to states through the federal Title I program – the largest K-12 funding stream that attempts to bolster resources in schools that serve low-income communities, but one that uses a complicated funding formula that, in part, favors states that spend more on their schools. As a result, school districts across the country with similar levels of poverty received very different amounts of support, the researchers documented.

In addition, there’s been documented disparities in the strategies being used to catch up students, with students in majority Black, Latino and low-income schools more often receiving less effective remedial education.

Despite the repetitive doom and gloom headlines, the results elevated a handful of bright spots, including a handful of states – Colorado, Indiana, Louisiana and Massachusetts, for example – that managed to fend off significant losses.

“Despite the countless obstacles that students faced over the course of the pandemic – including instability at home, decreased access to resources, teacher shortages, cyberbullying, and an uptick in violence once schools reopened – we also see pockets of remarkable resilience across the country, particularly in the country’s urban districts,” Carr said.

When it comes to reading, 65% of the urban districts showed no statistically different decline in fourth-grade reading scores and 84% showed no such decline in eighth-grade reading scores, which Carr called “remarkable.”

“But academic recovery cannot simply be about returning to what was normal before the pandemic, as the pandemic laid bare an opportunity gap that has long existed,” Carr said. “It also showed how every student was vulnerable to the pandemic’s disruptions. We do not have a moment to waste.”

Cuts could cost thousands of US soldiers their education benefits

  • The US Army is contemplating reducing financial aid programs that encourage education.
  • Budget cuts to two major financial aid programs could affect over 100,000 soldiers.
  • Talks of budget cuts coincide with a time where Army recruitment is falling short of its goals.

Insider Today

The US Army is considering making reductions to two key financial assistance programs that promote higher education, something which has long been a selling point for military service.

Potential budget cuts to the Army's Credential Assistance and Tuition Assistance programs could impact over 100,000 soldiers, policy experts recently told Inside Higher Education.

Army Secretary Christine Wormuth told the House of Representatives last week that budget changes may be made as the program has become a "catastrophic success," explaining that the program has become widely popular but costly for the Army.

Related stories

"The challenge we have is we really, frankly, didn't put any guardrails around the program to help us scope it," she said.

Altogether, these programs cost the Army roughly $278 million in 2023.

The Credential Assistance program provides soldiers with $4,000 dollars a year going toward earning various certifications, and the Tuition Assistance program allows active-duty service members to receive $250 per hour of credit.

Wormuth emphasized that she wants to keep these programs but believes the number of credits and certifications soldiers can receive should be capped to manage costs. The qualifications making troops eligible for these programs could also be tightened as another solution.

"Those kinds of guardrails are very similar to what our sister services have done in the Air Force and the Navy," she said. "We obviously want to keep them. That's our number one goal, is to keep everybody. But how we transition them is critically important."

The Army is thoroughly reviewing the program, a service spokesperson told Business Insider, explaining that "we must implement the programs in a way that not only maximizes the benefit for our Soldiers, but also puts rules in place that ensure the responsible stewardship of resources and continued program viability."

Talks of budget cuts come at a time where recruiting for the Army is notably struggling. In 2023, the Army fell about 10,000 soldiers short of its 65,000-person goal.

Will Hubbard, the vice president for veterans and military policy at Veterans Education Success, an organization advocating to protect military and veteran benefits, told Inside Higher Education that these benefits "serve a long-term purpose of being valuable both to the individual and the Service, and therefore, any cuts to this program, now or in the future, would be met with strong opposition."

Polk Education Association urges school board to start bargaining

BARTOW, Fla. — The Polk Education Association is asking the school district to set dates to begin the bargaining process for teacher and staff salaries for next school year.

What You Need To Know

The polk education association is asking the school district to start bargaining now, and not wait until the end of the fiscal year this summer pea officials say 19 other florida school districts have started the bargaining process, including hillsborough and pinellas more education headlines.

Union members say bargaining has always started right after the legislative session ends in mid-March, but this year, they’re being told it likely won’t happen until June or July.

Polk Education Association President Stephanie Yocum attended Tuesday’s school board meeting, along with about 100 other Polk County educators, to push for bargaining to begin.

“We have about 19 other districts in Florida that have come back to the table with their union to bargain salaries, raises for next year," she said. "We have four in our immediate area — Hillsborough, Orange, Osceola, Pinellas."

She says those other counties are her concern, because many teachers are making employment decisions for next school year right now.

“Our teachers and staff that are currently working for Polk county some hope of what this might look like even if it’s not fully done, to see what it looks like, they might stay," Yocum said.

At the meeting, Superintendent Frederick Heid said without the governor signing the budget, the district can’t negotiate until the fiscal year closes this summer.

“What I won’t do is lowball our employees, because right now, if we were forced to go back to the table, I have to under worst-case scenario assumptions, not best-case scenario assumptions, and that means I cannot over-extend us fiscally,” Heid said.

Yocum countered by saying what the district can’t afford to do right now is wait.

“There’s about 550 instructional jobs open for next school year,” she said, scrolling through job posting’s on Polk County School’s website. 

With so many teacher vacancies, the risk of losing any more is too much, and ultimately, she said it's students who will suffer.

“We want what’s best for kids — we need our district to also see the bigger picture that this is about kids," Yocum said. "And when you treat your teachers and staff with respect, when you give them what their raise could look like before making decisions for the summer, that helps kids.”

The Polk Education Association is also pushing the district to put a millage referendum on the ballot, which they say also needs to be decided on sooner rather than later.

HECS indexation is expected to be 4.7 per cent. Check how much extra you could be paying with our calculator

University students sitting on chairs at their graduation with a blue cap and gown on

The financial year doesn't end for another two months, but there's a closer deadline many people with university debts are dreading: June 1. 

On June 1, all unpaid HECS/HELP debts will automatically increase when indexation is applied. 

If you've got a higher education debt, here's what you need to know.

But if you're not familiar with HECS, tap the links below for a quick explanation:

What is a HECS debt?

What is indexation, what is the hecs indexation rate for 2024.

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) hasn't formally confirmed the indexation figures yet.

But, now we have the latest Consumer Price Index (CPI) numbers , we can work it out ourselves. 

This year, HECS-HELP debt is expected to  increase by 4.7 per cent after indexation.

But that's provided the same formula from last year applies (more on that later). 

It's less than last year's 7.1 per cent increase, but significantly higher than 2021 — when indexation was just 0.6 per cent. 

How much is my HECS debt going to go up by?

Below is a calculator that will tell you how much your HECS-HELP debt will increase by if indexation is applied in the same way it did last year.

It's automatically set to $25,000 to represent a typical HECS-HELP debt.

Plug in your debt balance to see what it might look like post-indexation.

But, remember, this is an estimate based on last year's indexation formula. 

When is HECS/HELP indexed?

But with the federal budget coming up on May 14, federal Education Minister Jason Clare has indicated he's open to changing the way HECS repayments are calculated.

It's unclear what that could mean — or whether any changes would come into effect before this year's indexation deadline — so we'll be combing through the budget papers in a few weeks time for more details. 

Where can I find my HECS debt?

You can check it online at the ATO website or through the myGov app .

But you'll need to create a myGov account and link it to the ATO.

If you're looking for your total in the myGov app, tap the Services icon and tap on the Australian Taxation Office link in the menu.

Once you're in the ATO menu, scroll down to the Loan accounts section and tap the view button.

The balance is what you still owe.

A screenshot of the ATO website that shows someone how much HECS/HELP debt they have owing

Which education loans are indexed to inflation?

Any higher-education loan scheme is indexed, including:

  • Higher Education Loan Program (HELP)
  • VET Student Loan (VSL)
  • Student Financial Supplement Scheme (SFSS)
  • Student Start-up Loan (SSL)
  • ABSTUDY Student Start-up Loan (ABSTUDY SSL)
  • Trade Support Loan (TSL)

What were the previous HECS/HELP indexation rates?

The lowest indexation rate we've seen in the past 14 years was in 2021, when it was just 0.6 per cent.

The highest was last year's, at 7.1 per cent.

Here's a look back:

Who has the highest HECS debt in Australia?

Last year, the Australian Tax Office (ATO) released the country's 100 largest HELP/HECS debts through a Freedom of Information request.

The highest debt was $737,000 .

The second highest was $495,990, with the top 10 all holding balances of more than $300,000.

By the end of the 2023 financial year, more than 86,000 people owed a debt between $60,000 and $70,000.

All up, nearly three million Australians with a student debt owe the government a total of $78 billion.

What is the average HECS debt in Australia?

The average student HECS debt in Australia is $26,494 .

The table below shows how much the average HECS debt has gone up since the 2009-2010 financial year.

Once the 4.7 per cent indexation is applied, the average student debt of $26,494 will increase by $1,245.

What is the maximum HECS/HELP debt limit?

According to the Australian Government Study Assist website, the HECS/HELP loan limit is $121,844 for most students .

The limit for students studying medicine, dentistry, and veterinary science courses leading to initial registration is $174,998.

But you'll notice how the highest debt we talked about earlier was $737,000 — which is much more than the limit. 

That's because, if they've gone unpaid, HECS debts can increase with time.

And that's how people can end up paying more for their loan than they initially borrowed. 

How much do you have to earn to pay back HECS debt?

Here's what the 2023-24 financial year's repayment rates are, according to income.

But keep in mind, these repayment rates may change come July.

  • $51,550 — $59,518: 1.0%

It's a debt people accumulate if, instead of paying their university fees up front, they opt for a federal government loan to pay it off later. 

These debts are interest-free.

But that doesn't mean they won't increase because, each year, indexation is applied. 

And indexation doesn't just apply to the original figure students borrowed — it applies to whatever the debt is at the time. 

So, say a degree cost $20,000. 

And, after a year, an indexation fee of 4 per cent is applied — the student now owes $20,800.

Then, the next year, indexation is 7 per cent — that's applied to the $20,800, not the original loan amount. 

So then that debt increases by $1,456.

Assuming the student hasn't made any payments in those two years, their debt has gone up to $22,256.

A key feature of the loan scheme is that students don't have to start paying off their debts until they earn more than a certain amount. 

And this money should be deducted from each pay cheque by their employers. 

However, their debts still increase with indexation each year even when they earn less than this threshold.

So if a graduate takes 10 years to work up to a point where they're being paid above the threshold, they don't start making an involuntary payment for a decade. 

But their HECS debt has had a decade of indexation fees applied — meaning their debt will be higher than the original loan. 

Got it, take me back to the top!

Indexation is a fee that is applied once a year — always on June 1 — and affects the overall amount of a person's HECS/HELP debt .

Indexation means that the price of something is changed in correspondence with an external factor.

In this case, the price of something is the student debt and the external factor is the CPI.

Each year, student loans increase based off the CPI percentage — which is a set of figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) every three months to track the cost of living.

Why is HECS indexed?

We went to ABC business editor Michael Janda to get his explanation on the purpose of indexation:

"Due to inflation, which is the tendency for the purchasing power of money to diminish over time, the 'real' value of HECS debts would shrink if they were not indexed. "By indexing them by CPI, the government links the value of the debt to the most widely accepted measure of inflation and keeps their 'real' value constant."

Jayhawks recognized for research at 2024 Capitol Graduate Research Summit

At Kansas Capitol, Ric Steele, AVP for Graduate Studies; S. Mohsen Fatemi, Merve Akin-Tas, Natalie Lind, Susan Koerner, Annie Chuning, Kara Hageman, Luke Parker, Cassie Sutton.

Wed, 04/24/2024

Genevieve Prescher

LAWRENCE — Four University of Kansas students received honors during the 21st annual Capitol Graduate Research Summit in Topeka on March 22. Annie Chuning, Kara Hageman, Natalie Lind and Luke Parker were each honored for their exceptional research and presentations at an event that assembles the top graduate student researchers in the state of Kansas.

Food insecurity, health and BMI

Annie Chuning, doctoral student in clinical child psychology, received a research award from the Office of Graduate Studies at the Lawrence campus for the project titled "Rates of Food Insecurity Influence Parent/Child Mental Health and BMI in Rural Kansas."

Ann Davis, professor of pediatrics at KU Medical Center and Chuning's faculty adviser, said the main goal of the research was to assess food insecurity among families who participated in the National Institutes of Health-funded “iAmHealthy” study.

“The project was designed to bring a state-of-the-art obesity treatment program to rural families in the state of Kansas, and we discovered that a high proportion of our participants also had food insecurity. Annie’s project helped us to learn more,” Davis said.

Chuning found high rates of food insecurity in this overweight or obese rural population, and these were associated with higher depression, anxiety and body mass index for parents in the study.

"There is a lot of stigma surrounding food insecurity, and very few researchers have looked at food insecurity in families living in rural areas with overweight or obese individuals," Chuning said.

Davis said the findings show overlap between food insecurity and obesity and indicated that treating one may improve the other.

This study’s findings can better inform policy related to the food supply in Kansas, prioritizing availability, affordability and accessibility of fresh, minimally processed foods from local suppliers while shifting perspectives about the underlying causes of obesity and how it can increase the mental health burden for parents.

Davis' current intervention study, which extends the previous project to also provide a parent-focused program prior to family-based sessions, is actively recruiting. They are looking for families living in rural areas who may have weight-related health issues .

Orthopedic joint infection prevention

Kara Hageman , 2020-2024 Self Graduate Fellow and a doctoral student in bioengineering, received a research award from BioKansas for the project titled "Preventing Orthopedic Joint Infection by Developing Antibacterial Bone Cement."

With bacteria developing resistance to current antibiotic treatments, Hageman's approach provides an alternative prevention strategy. By combining bone cement with bioactive glass, her work aims to lower the occurrence of infection around orthopedic implants while reducing antibiotic use of orthopedic implants.

"The goal of my research is to develop a material that can be utilized in total hip or total knee replacement surgeries that does not fully rely on antibiotics to ward off bacterial infection," Hageman said.

"Implant related infections are particularly difficult and result in vastly increased expense and morbidity. We have not yet found an acceptable way to prevent them,” said Terence McIff, associate professor of orthopedic surgery and sports medicine at KU Medical Center and Hageman’s faculty adviser.

“Bioactive glasses already have proved themselves useful as healing aids and can be formulated to also have antimicrobial properties. These resorbable and osteoconductive glasses can easily be incorporated into the bone cements we currently use to both prevent and treat infection locally at the site of the infection surrounding an implant,” McIff said.

“Total joint replacement surgeries are predicted to rise and reach 4.5 million by the year 2040,” Hageman said. “With infection being the No. 1 cause of failure, and bacteria developing resistance to the current antibiotic medications, there is a large need for better prevention methods.”

Nuclear fuel recycling strategies

Natalie Lind , 2023-2027 Self Graduate Fellow and a doctoral student in chemistry, received a research award from BioKansas for the project "Uranium Catch and Release as a Strategy for Nuclear Fuel Recycling."

Lind's project aims to develop a new method for extracting and recycling uranium from nuclear waste, which could make nuclear power more sustainable.

"The objective is to develop a process for isolating uranium by driving it from solution onto an electrode surface," said James Blakemore, associate professor of chemistry and Lind’s faculty adviser. "It's a 'catch and release' strategy to remove and isolate the uranium."

With 95% of spent fuel still usable, Lind's method could benefit nuclear plants by providing recycled uranium for fuel while reducing disposal volumes.

"Our electrically driven chemistry could lead to more practical ways to separate uranium from used nuclear fuels,” Blakemore said.

Lind has demonstrated the efficacy of the "catch and release" method for uranium recycling. Blakemore said this breakthrough evolved serendipitously, with Lind having "eagle eyes to spot something special happening."

“I am driven to develop strategies to reduce the environmental burden associated with waste from nuclear power,” Lind said. “One promising approach involves the recycling of used nuclear fuel, which would not only reduce the total amount of nuclear waste requiring disposal but also curb the annual mining of uranium.”

Integrating AI into higher education

Luke Parker , doctoral student in curriculum & teaching in the School of Education & Health Sciences, received a research award from the Office of Graduate Studies at the Lawrence campus for the project titled "Transforming Academic Landscapes: A Comprehensive Study of Artificial Intelligence's Integration in Higher Education."

Steven White, associate professor in the department of curriculum and teaching and Parker's faculty adviser, said Parker’s research aims to provide a comprehensive overview of how AI technologies are being integrated into various facets of campus life.

Through a wide-ranging survey methodology encompassing graduate students, faculty and staff, Parker’s study examines the diverse patterns of AI usage, attitudes and ethical perceptions within the university community.

By critically examining the potential of AI to revolutionize educational practices, Parker aims to inform the development of robust ethical frameworks and guidelines for AI integration in academia.

"The value of research lies in its application; I hope that the research that I do is not contrived to a journal article or book chapter that is never read, but instead is used to inform policy, to inform practice, and ultimately to benefit students and teachers," Parker said.

"This research will serve as a critical resource for informing policy and decision-making, ensuring strategies for integrating and governing AI are aligned with the needs of our community,” White said.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — After a marathon day that stretched into Saturday’s early hours, Iowa lawmakers wrapped up a four-month legislative session that focused on reforming the way special education is managed and speeding up tax cuts. The Republican-led General Assembly also waded into issues like immigration and religious freedom , which have proven core to the party’s 2024 campaign message.

Gov. Kim Reynolds, a Republican, pushed many priorities through the Legislature after submitting 18 requests for bill drafts, more than any other year of her tenure and any other governor since 2006, publicly available data shows.

Here’s a look at the issues that made headlines:


Education was a key issue for Reynolds this session, including one proposal to revise the state’s education system for students with disabilities that consumed lawmakers’ attention.

Reynolds wanted school districts to be able to choose how to use their special education dollars. For decades, those funds have gone directly to cooperatives known as area education agencies, or AEAs, that provide special education services.

A compromise lets schools choose, starting in 2025, how to spend 10% of their special education funding. But that approach, along with other changes in the final bill, still leaves many disability advocates and AEA staff concerned that the agencies and special education will suffer.

Lawmakers also approved an increased minimum salary for Iowa teachers. In the upcoming school year, teachers with less than 12 years of experience will earn at least $47,500, up from $33,500. The minimum salary for more experienced teachers rises to $60,000. Both figures will increase again in the following school year.

The law also addressed non-salaried teachers and staff, allocating $14 million to help schools raise supplemental teacher pay.

In the final days of the session, lawmakers passed provisions to restrict programs related to diversity, equity and inclusion, or DEI, at the state’s public universities, joining a wave of Republican-led states weighing in on the initiatives. The bill prohibits staff positions and offices dedicated to creating or promoting DEI policies, programming or training, except as otherwise required by federal regulations.


Iowa Republicans followed Texas’ footsteps by passing a bill making it a state crime for a person to be in Iowa if previously denied admission to or removed from the United States. Reynolds signed it into law on April 10.

In Iowa and across the country , Republican leaders have accused President Joe Biden of neglecting his responsibilities to enforce federal immigration law.

The Iowa law, which takes effect July 1, has elevated anxiety in Iowa’s immigrant communities and has prompted questions among legal experts and law enforcement on how it will be enforced. It mirrors part of a Texas law that is currently blocked in court. The Justice Department has argued that such state laws are a clear violation of federal authority.


A bill passed this year updated an existing program that funds nonprofits known as crisis pregnancy centers, typically nonmedical facilities that counsel clients against having an abortion, charging the state’s health agency with implementation after it had difficulty finding a third-party administrator.

A separate budget bill provides an additional $1 million in funding for the program.

Lawmakers, with Reynolds’ recommendation, also expanded maternity leave from 60 days to 12 months for the state’s lowest-income moms on Medicaid.

Iowa Democrats, who have proposed expanded Medicaid maternity leave in the past, said the bill would remove benefits for certain mothers who did not meet the lower income threshold.


Iowa joined about two dozen other states by enacting an echo of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a 1993 federal law that said government would not be able to “substantially burden” someone’s constitutional right to freedom of religion.

Republicans argued that religious freedom is under attack, so the state’s code needed to further enshrine those rights, while Democrats said it would allow some people’s religious beliefs to justify discrimination.

Republican lawmakers voted to speed up the state’s 2022 income tax cuts, instituting a 3.8% flat income tax rate beginning next year.

Republicans also took the first steps toward two tax-related constitutional amendments to put before Iowa voters. One would enshrine the state’s use of a single rate for income taxes, and the other would require a two-thirds majority of lawmakers to change the tax code. To put a constitutional amendment on the ballot, Iowa lawmakers have to approve it in two consecutive sessions, so both resolutions would have to pass again in 2025 or 2026 to make the ballot.


Lawmakers rejected one bill that would have removed gender identity from the state’s civil right law and another that would have narrowly defined male and female. The latter, requested by Reynolds, would have required a transgender person’s assigned sex at birth to be listed alongside their gender identity on their birth certificate.

House Republicans failed to advance a Senate-approved bill proposed by chemical giant Bayer that would have given the company legal protections against claims it failed to warn that its popular pesticide Roundup causes cancer, if the company is otherwise in compliance with federal regulations. One House Republican, a farmer, said he’ll put his name on it next year to try to see it through.

Iowa lawmakers also did not put forth a ballot initiative declaring there is no constitutional right to abortion in the state — after initially advancing the measure in 2021. Reynolds has said she’ll let the issue move through the courts rather than push for a vote. Iowa’s current law banning most abortions after roughly six weeks , before many women know they are pregnant, was enacted in July but paused by a judge soon after. The state Supreme Court will weigh in on the case in June.

A bill that would have made changes to Iowa’s fetal homicide law was shelved after a Senate Republican joined Democrats in voicing concerns about the potential impact on in vitro fertilization following an Alabama court ruling that frozen embryos can be considered children. Iowa’s law currently outlines penalties for terminating or seriously injuring a “human pregnancy.” The House-approved bill would have changed that language to apply to the death of, or serious injury to, an “unborn person” from fertilization to live birth.

Hecs/Help debt to rise by 4.8% in June as indexation lifts average loan by more than $1,200

Greens criticise Albanese government’s ‘abysmal lack of action’ as CPI figures show education costs driving up inflation

  • Follow our Australia news live blog for latest updates

Varsha Yaiman is 21 years old and already has more than $35,000 in debt. Not on a house, or a car, but a student loan.

Four years into her double arts/law degree, Yaiman said she and her peers find the future “truly terrifying”.

She’s among millions of Australians with student loans that will be hit by increases of more than $1,000 in June, new figures show, as calls grow for the commonwealth to act on a growing “debt spiral”.

Quarterly figures, released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics on Wednesday, revealed inflation grew by 3.6% over the year to 31 March, in large part due to a rise in education costs, which grew by 5.9%.

The repayment of Hecs/Help loans is tied to indexation, calculated by combining the consumer price index (CPI) numbers for the four quarters to March and dividing the number by the same figure for the previous year.

It places this year’s rate at 4.8%, down from a punitive 7.1% last year but still the second highest rise in more than a decade.

It means students with an average debt of $26,494 will have their loans increased by $1,272 when indexed on 1 June, on top of a $1,758 increase last year.

Students with debts of $50,000 will face rises of $2,400, while students with $100,000 loans will be hit with a $4,800 increase. More than 335,000 students have loans in excess of $50,000, Australian Taxation Office (ATO) figures show.

Yaiman’s debt will rise by almost $2,000.

“We’re in a cost of living crisis, I’m currently renting, I have bills to pay,” she said.

“I’ve tried to make a contribution to my student debt. Many of my peers have as well. And in reality it doesn’t even make a dent.”

The university accord final report, released in February, acknowledged Australia’s Hecs/Help system could be “fairer and simpler”, adding Australians shouldn’t be deterred from studying because of the increased burden of student loans.

It recommended the commonwealth ensured loans didn’t outpace wage growth by setting the indexation rate to whatever was lower out of the consumer price index (CPI) and wage price index (WPI), as some MPs, including Zoe Daniel, have called for .

Guardian Australia understands this is the government’s preferred solution, likely to be announced ahead of the budget.

Other suggested tweaks included reducing student contribution amounts for low-income earners, changing the timing of indexation to deduct compulsory repayments first and interrogating bank lending practices to ensure student debt had no impact on applications.

The education minister, Jason Clare, has flagged he will respond to the accord’s recommendations in the coming weeks, however his colleagues have been more vocal.

Speaking on FM radio last week, the prime minister acknowledged there was “a range of areas where we need to do much better with the younger generation … and Hecs [the higher education contribution scheme] is one of them”.

Days later, the treasurer told reporters the federal government was looking at both student debt relief and unpaid placements in the budget.

“We do acknowledge that students are under pressure and if we can afford to do something to help on that front, that’s obviously something we’ll consider as we finalise the budget,” he said.

The Greens say proposed reforms don’t go far enough, instead pushing for the commonwealth to abolish indexation altogether and increase the minimum repayment threshold to the median wage.

It is now $51,550, about $6,000 higher than the minimum wage.

Deputy Greens leader and spokesperson for education senator Mehreen Faruqi said the “alarming trajectory” of rate rises showed a “clear failure of the current system”.

“Labor refused demands from the Greens to protect students from huge debt increases last year, but there is still time to stop the massive indexation hit coming again this June.

“No more kicking the can down the road.”

The education officer of the National Union of Students, Grace Franco, said young people studying today face futures where they would spend decades paying off their debts.

“We’re set to be the most indebted generation in history,” she said.

“The Hecs system is broken. It’s impacting student’s abilities to afford houses, to start families, and to continue further education.” The shadow minister for education, Senator Sarah Henderson, said the commonwealth was “reaping dividends” from escalating student debt.

Since the Albanese Labor government entered office, debts have risen by more than 16% – equivalent to more than $12bn.

ATO data showed Australians paid a record $2.9bn in voluntary Hecs/Help repayments in the 2022–2023 financial year, up from $780m the previous year in a bid to escape indexation.

It was equivalent to a 272% increase in voluntary repayments.

“Hit by a crippling 7.1% increase in their student debts, 164,000 Australians made voluntary repayments averaging $17,636 in an attempt to pay down or pay off their debt,” Henderson said. “Minister Clare’s lack of action on student debt is abysmal.”
