Danielle Rhubart’s Research Cited in Marketwatch

Research by Lerner Postdoctoral Scholar, Danielle Rhubart, was cited in this Dow Jones Marketwatch article about how much school closures will cost parents.

“Research also suggests that mothers aren’t just reducing their hours, they’re leaving their jobs to cope. Among women who said they were not working due to the pandemic, more than 16% said it was because they had to care for children not in school or daycare, according to a research brief from Syracuse University’s Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion. That’s compared to less than 5% of men.”
