Clayton research in the news

Clayton Research Associate, Pedro Mendez, used his opportunity as a Buell Early Chilhdood Leadership Program student to develop a capstone project investigating achievement gaps in boys of color. Following the yearlong study, Pedro was not ready to walk away from his findings, which revealed strong reoccurring themes of bias in early education settings. In collaboration with the Early Chilhdood Colorado Partnership, Pedro was awarded a mini-grant to continue his examination of implicit bias and how cultural incompetency impacts children throughout their academic career.
