David Schwegman

CPR Graduate Research Assistant (PAIA)

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 University of Connecticut (2015).
