Hello, my name is Katharine Carter and I am thrilled to join CPE as its spring intern, where I hope to contribute and expand upon the team’s research efforts in public education.
I’ve often referenced education as my “family business,” because my grandparents and my mother were all educators in Baltimore City’s public school system. My interest in the advancement of public education has grown since I was a student at Howard University, where I worked with high school students in a college-prep program.
Prior to studying at Catholic University to obtain my Master’s degree, where my research experience has a specific focus on education policy and special education services for public school students, I worked for many years as a legislative analyst, where I reported on House and Senate floor proceedings and analyzed bills related to education.
I look forward to the opportunity to provide an unbiased analysis of the existing research and policy implications related to our nation’s public schools.
