Cara Fitzpatrick

Fall 2018

Cara Fitzpatrick is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and a current Spencer Fellow. She will work on a historical account that investigates the people, unusual political alliances, and big money interests that have shaped the rise of school vouchers over the last 60 years. She will also explore whether the rise of school vouchers has deepened segregation and inequality or helped low-income minority children get better access to quality schools.
