I'm happy to announce that I'll be taking on a more formal role at NYU's Research Alliance for New York City Schools as a Senior Technical Advisor. I have collaborated with the Research Alliance on a number of projects over the years, and am excited to take this next step.
My colleagues and I had a letter to the New York Times published. While the high school admissions process in NYC is complex--with room for reform--our ongoing work suggests that carefully-designed and targeted information can make the process easier.
Along with Vanderbilt economist Ron Zimmer, I talk about the benefits (and costs!) of public school choice on the PBS series American Graduate. This episode is entitled Choice or Chance? and is produced by Nashville Public Television. (Send in your pledge now, or NPT will replace "Downton Abbey" with more of me talking...)
