Schwartz research on education, summer jobs programs cited in Politico

Schwartz,-Amy-EllenA report co-authored by Amy Ellen Schwartz, Daniel Patrick Moynihan Chair in Public Affairs, was cited in the Politico article, "The Life-and-Death Consequences of Summer Jobs Programs." Schwartz and her co-authors found that from 2005 to 2008, high school students who joined New York City’s summer jobs program were more likely to take, pass and earn higher scores on the Regents exams, standardized tests required by New York state for high school graduation. 09/22/17
