This fall, the education policy program at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) celebrated its tenth year under the guidance of Frederick M. “Rick” Hess, a resident scholar and director of the program. Over the past decade, the team has helped shape today’s most timely debates on issues such as educational entrepreneurship, charter schooling, the role of philanthropy in K-12 education, cost-effectiveness, and the proper role of the federal government in education. In the process, the team itself has changed, growing from a staff of just two into a prolific group of eight today, including two dynamic research fellows in Andrew P. Kelly and Michael Q. McShane. This 10-year anniversary review is intended to summarize the past decade, as well as offer a glimpse of what is to come.
