Meet CPE’s new research analyst— Chandi Wagner

HeadshotAs the newest member of the CPE team, I am excited to keep you up to date on the most recent research and education news available.  Hundreds of academics, foundations, and think tanks publish relevant information for school policy makers, and we’re here to dig through it for you.

After working in youth development non-profits (Camp Fire USA and Girl Scouts), I served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Ecuador.  I taught 3rd, 5th, & 7th grades in the Austin, TX area, working with low-income and bilingual students.  I have the utmost respect for teachers, as they are in the trenches with kids every day.  It is the hardest job I will ever do.

My research experience has focused on education technology, class size, teacher retention, and teacher evaluation.  I was fortunate to study under outstanding professors at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin before joining CPE.  My goal is to provide reliable, unbiased information to help policy makers make the wisest decisions for their schools.

It’s a pleasure to meet you.
