David Schwegman is a PhD student in the Department of Public
Administration and International Affairs (PAIA) and one of the newest graduate
research associates at the Center. He started in CPR this fall, 2016. His work
focuses on issues of public finance, education finance, housing discrimination,
and housing policy. His previous work examined the impact of alternative
revenue sources on school finance, specifically the case of the
Education-Specific Local Option Sales Tax in Georgia. Currently, he is
evaluating at the impact of teacher accountability reforms on the supply of new
teachers (with scholars at the University of Connecticut and Brown University).
He will be presenting this paper at the Association for Education Finance and
Policy in March 2017.
David is also working with Bob Bifulco, Professor of Public
Administration and Chair of the PAIA Department, examining the impact of
non-instructional staff on teacher labor market decisions in New York City; and
working with Jud Murchie on a project that examines rental market
discrimination against Veterans.
Prior to coming to Syracuse, David led the Institutional
Research office and was an adjunct professor at Goodwin College in East
Hartford, Connecticut. During graduate school, he worked as a program analyst
for the Office of Forensic Services at the Connecticut Department of Mental
Health and Addition Services. A native of Granby, Connecticut, David completed
his B.A. in Economics (2013), a B.A. in History (2013), and his M.P.A at the
