The course will finish in February with students presentations.


Ria Mehta, first year M.A. student in Education Policy has shared her opinion about the course.

"The Federal Policy Institute provided an exclusive chance to engage with real game-changers in education policy at the very center of United States politics, Washington D.C. We were able to learn a piece about every influence in education policy from the very leaders themselves, such as Ginny Edwards from Education Week, David Johns from the White House Initiative on Educator Excellence for African Americans, Michael Petrilli from the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, and Richard Kahlenburg from the Century Foundation. These individuals, and many more, communicated knowledge that could never be encapsulated in an essay or research paper because of their direct knowledge to what happens when Senators debate bills or when businessmen gain more leverage than world-renown academics. Thank you to Dr. Lynn Kagan for creating such an amazing program-- her reputable position in the education world allowed us to meet with such honorable leaders in the field."
