Malkus, Nat; Schirra, Tracey – American Enterprise Institute, 2022
Despite compelling evidence that master's degrees don't systematically make teachers more effective for their students, most US school districts provide a pay premium for them.

Delisle, Jason D., Ed. – American Enterprise Institute, 2022
A long overdue, much needed transformation is underway in the higher education system. It started a decade ago, when federal and state policy­makers first began to collect data on what students earn after pursuing a postsecondary education. But new data are fundamentally differ­ent. Unlike broad-based national statistics, such as how much someone…

de Alva, Jorge Klor – American Enterprise Institute, 2022
Current accountability in higher education is primarily focused on equality--the application of the same metrics to all schools no matter whom they enroll.

Smarick, Andy – American Enterprise Institute, 2021
Urban communities are typically remarkably diverse in residents' backgrounds, values, and views of the good life. The "community," then, is held together by a staggering number of relationships, compromises, habits, associations, and traditions that have been worked out over time. Dramatic change spurred by philanthropic initiatives can…

Beienburg, Matt – American Enterprise Institute, 2021
Despite a growing chorus among conservatives about the problem of politics in the classroom, those on the right have struggled to advance long-term solutions to it.

Brickman, Michael – American Enterprise Institute, 2021
The higher education system does not work well for taxpayers, students, or higher education institutions. Student loans were expected to be such a good deal for taxpayers that their projected revenues were used to offset costs associated with the Affordable Care Act and increasing the size of Pell Grants. Less than a decade ago, the federal…

Horn, Michael B. – American Enterprise Institute, 2021
As full-time virtual learning moved from the fringe to the mainstream in mid-March 2020, onlookers expressed concerns about access for learners and accountability for the learning itself.

McShane, Michael Q. – American Enterprise Institute, 2021
In education policy, conservatives have often been more identifiable by what they are against than what they are for. Ronald Reagan ran in 1980 promising to eliminate the Department of Education, and since then, numerous conservative politicians have stated they wish to do the same. At times, conservatives have been known to support school choice…

Brickman, Michael – American Enterprise Institute, 2021
Education reformers have spent decades doggedly working to improve student outcomes in K-12 education by championing policies spanning federal, state, and local jurisdictions. Higher education is a much different story. Policy ideas at the federal level are plentiful; however, state- or institution-level policies are examined and implemented far…

Pondiscio, Robert; Schirra, Tracey – American Enterprise Institute, 2021
A founding purpose of public education is to adequately prepare children for thoughtful self-government, citizenship, and independent adult life. This end is served by having educators teach students not what to think about controversial or contested public matters but how to think such issues through. When educators fail in this essential duty,…

Malkus, Nat – American Enterprise Institute, 2021
Between 2020 and 2021, Congress appropriated nearly $190 billion in Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funding for K-12 schools.
