Maxwell alumni and friends are invited to join us on Wednesday, August 5 at 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET for a Maxwell conversation with Professor Amy Ellen Schwartz. Professor Schwartz will lead a conversation on children’s academic success and the impact of factors including school lunches, school buses, and housing and neighborhoods – and the implications for re-opening schools this fall.

Amy Ellen Schwartz is Professor of Economics, Public Administration and International Affairs and the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Chair in Public Affairs at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School. Her research spans a broad range of topics in education policy and urban economics, focusing on the nexus of schools, neighborhoods, and public services and the causes and consequences of children’s academic, social, and health outcomes. Professor Schwartz serves on various editorial boards and was the editor of Education Finance and Policy from 2014-2019.
