Jon (email@example.com) is a doctoral candidate in Educational Policy at Stanford University. He studies education policies and politics as they relate to K-12 achievement gaps. He is particularly interested in school choice in urban settings, both with respect to how families choose schools and how schools of choice serve their students. Jon also uses quantitative methodologies to examine the ways in which political settings – and the particular actors with political power – affect policy outputs and social outcomes. Jon has an IES fellowship as part of the Stanford Interdisciplinary Doctoral Training Program in Quantitative Education Policy Analysis. He holds a master's degree in Political Science (MA) from Stanford University, a master's degree in Public Policy (MPP) from the Harvard Kennedy School, and a bachelor's degree (BA) from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
