Sean Corcoran, Assistant Professor of Economics at California State University-Sacramento, Thomas Romer, Professor of Politics and Public Affairs at Princeton University, and Howard Rosenthal, Professor of Politics at New York University, form a working group that will construct a comprehensive time-series database with demographic, political, and financial information on American school districts. While at the Foundation, they will use information from this database to begin writing a book about the political economy of financing U.S. schools, focusing on inequality in school spending.
