2016 REPORT  

Amid the controversies over Common Core, choice, testing, racial disparities, and teacher unions, PEPG and Education Next continue to report research on major developments and track the public's and teachers' responses as part of its annual poll.

We are especially proud of the talented scholars who are participating in our training and research programs. Featured in this issue are snapshots of research by undergraduate students, graduate and postdoctoral fellows, and colleagues, including:

Matthew Ackerman (Harvard) reports that Common Core may have enhanced the rigor of states' proficiency standards.

Anna J. Egalite (North Carolina State University) demonstrates that inclusion of classmates with emotional and behavioral disabilities has unintended consequences for classmates' absenteeism rates.

Michael Henderson (Louisiana State University) finds little evidence of a public backlash against standardized testing.

R. Shep Melnick (Boston College) argues that the current federal equity initiative is the wrong solution to the problem of low educa- tional outcomes among minority children.

Martin R. West (Harvard) shows that public schools reap unexpected benefits from an economic downturn when entry-level teacher salaries look more enticing..
