He is currently working on a multi-year implementation study of personalized learning in 17 different school systems. In addition to policy reports, Mike’s research has been published in academic journals, including Education Finance and Policy, Education Administration Quarterly, and Journal of Education Finance, as well as in edited volumes from the Brookings Institution Press, the Urban Institute Press, and Harvard Education Press.
