We are thrilled that the American Education Research Association Education Research Service Program has chosen to fund our work to do eight in-depth case studies of students and caregivers receiving services from our partner TREE (a program of the Cobscook Community Learning Center). Through these in-depth case studies we will better understand how the types of services that TREE provides (access to basic need support at the school site, mental health services for students and teachers, and training on trauma, equity, and student empowerment) affect the diversity of students and families that are served by TREE’s partner schools.
