The Education Community is mourning the death of a prominent Vancouver Early Learning expert

A UBC researcher and expert in early learning has passed away.

Vancouver School Board Chair Patti Bacchus says Dr. Clyde Hertzman was a leader in research and education regarding the impacts of poverty on early learning — and on early childhood education in general.

She says Hertzman was well-known to everyone in the educational community.

“And I think we’ve learned a lot from his research about how to best support children, why we need to support children and how various factors in early childhood affect an ability of a child to succeed in school.”

Hertzman received the Order of Canada last month.  He was 59 years old.

How he died is not known.
