December 19, 2006

December 19, 2006 – School voucher research conducted in Harvard’s Program on Education Policy and Governance (PEPG) has been identified as one of the 13 most influential studies shaping education policy over the past 10 years, according to the Bethesda, Md.-based Editorial Projects in Education (EPE) Research Center in a recently released report, Influence: A Study of the Factors Shaping Education Policy.

The core of the research, conducted by William G. Howell and Paul E. Peterson, together with Patrick Wolf and David Campbell, was published in 2002 by the Brookings Institution Press under the title The Education Gap. That work, together with associated publications in various papers and journal articles, was cited by EPE as among the 13 “blockbuster” studies of the past decade.
