What’s Next for Kentucky Schools?

Dr. Zimmer, the Martin School Director and a leading expert on education policy, participated in a panel discussion. The Gatton School has posted a video online of the event. The panel discusses school choice, vouchers, and charter schools.


Dr. Zimmer provides insight in a recent article released by Boston Globe, discussing school reform in Providence Rhode Island.

In a new Brookings post, Dr. Darolia and his colleagues offer analysis based on their research of the impact of student loan debt letters.

Student and Alumni Spotlight

Here at the Martin School, we are lucky to have some fantastic alumni. From recent graduates to our more seasoned alumni, we love to celebrate our graduate's success. We are excited to continue that celebration by examining how the Martin School prepared recent 2018 grad Matt Schaffer for his new career with The Council of State Governments (CSG).  

Jeana Dunlap (MPA ’06) was recently selected to be a Harvard Loeb Fellow. We are thrilled to hear of her accomplishments! We caught up with her to discuss her passion for public service as she embarks on this new chapter. 

Ruthann Froberg, a current MPA student, reports back on her summer internship in Knoxville! Ruthann is passionate about serving senior citizens. She spent her summer working at the Knox County Community Action Council's Office of Aging.
