Jeanne Brooks-Gunn, the Virginia and Leonard Marx Professor of Child Development at Teachers College and the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University.

The online magazine, Education.com, reports the details of a study by researchers at the National Center for Children and Families (NCCF) at Teachers College that examined the role household disorder plays in the reading development of children.
The study, Order in the House! Associations among Household Chaos, the Home Literacy Environment, Maternal Reading Ability, and Children’s Early Reading, was published in the October issue of Merrill-Palmer Quarterly. It was co-authored by TC doctoral students Anna D. Johnson, Senior Research Scientist Anne Martin, Jeanne Brooks-Gunn, Virginia and Leonard Marx Professor of Child Development at NCCF Co-director, and Stephen A. Petrill, a professor at Ohio State University.
