This year’s conference theme, "Strength in Numbers," is a celebration of a decade of data-informed progress from across our network and an opportunity to discuss our future direction. Join us for our 10th-anniversary celebration. We will look back at the evidence-informed progress we’ve made as a sector but also look forward to the pressing issues of the day. This year the event will take place at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA from May 20–22, 2019.

I study the effectiveness of school choice policies and programs (charter schools, magnet schools, and how parents make decisions about schools). I'll be presenting the results of a new study examining how school information guides can help nudge parents to make better school choices.
