Dr. Amy Ellen Schwartz

Dr. Amy Ellen Schwartz

Amy Ellen Schwartz joins Maxwell next month as the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Chair in Public Affairs.  Schwartz is an internationally renowned scholar of education policy, public finance and urban economics.  She will hold a dual appointment in the Departments of Public Administration & International Affairs and Economics. She has been appointed as a senior research associate in the Center for Policy Research.

”Amy Schwartz’s path-breaking research on education, public finance, and inequality speaks to some of the most consequential issues facing our communities today,” says Dean James Steinberg.   “Her work places her in the great tradition exemplified by Senator Moynihan, a tradition that lies at the heart of Maxwell’s mission – applying rigorous scholarship to urgent public policy challenges.”

Her research on K-12 education issues examines the relationship between student performance and housing and neighborhood change; the role of schools and neighborhoods in shaping childhood obesity; the relationship between school nutrition programs and student performance; immigration and mobility in urban schools; and the efficacy of school reforms.

This fall Schwartz will teach Education Policy. See full story on Schwartz’s career and appointment.
