Melnick, R. Shep – Education Next, 2018
Over the past decade, federal regulation of education under Title IX has been sucked into the impetuous vortex of partisan polarization.

Melnick, R. Shep – Brookings Institution Press, 2018

Wagner, Kathryn Drury – Journal of College Admission, 2017
When parents of today's students were applying to colleges, they researched factors like location, financial aid, and majors. Physical safety was barely on the radar--it was assumed.
