Cumming, Michelle M.; Bettini, Elizabeth; Pham, Andy V.; Park, Jeeyun – Review of Educational Research, 2020
Executive functioning (EF) is key to students' school and lifelong success and reflects both genetic predisposition and sensitivity to negative and positive experiences.

Whitacre, Ian; Henning, Bonnie; Ataba?, ?ebnem – Review of Educational Research, 2020
In this article, we review research literature concerning number sense from several related fields.

Our purpose is to clarify the…

Pearman, Francis A., II. – Review of Educational Research, 2019
Research in the neighborhood effects tradition has primarily concerned itself with understanding the consequences of growing up in high-poverty neighborhoods.

Garcia, Gina A.; Núñez, Anne-Marie; Sansone, Vanessa A. – Review of Educational Research, 2019
Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) are colleges and universities that enroll at least 25% Latinx students. Despite being recognized by the federal government since 1992, HSIs lack a historical mission to serve Latinxs. As such the idea of "servingness" has become an elusive concept. An abundance of literature centering HSIs has been…

Recent mass closings of schools have rocked cities across the United States. Though these urban closures--and widespread community protests--have made headlines, rural schools have also long experienced and opposed the closure of their schools. A large body of research examines these urban and rural closures from a variety of perspectives,…

Kim, Sung won; Cho, Hyunsun; Kim, Lois Y. – Review of Educational Research, 2019
Despite the multiple meta-analyses documenting the association between socioeconomic status (SES) and achievement, none have examined this question outside of English-speaking industrialized countries.
