The American Federation of Teachers and Funded Research

Research fellowship: Vouchers

The American Federation of Teachers is seeking a current college student (or recent graduate) for a 12- month fellowship to work with the AFT to examine the impact of educational voucher and tuition tax-credit systems on student performance and district finances. Under the supervision of the AFT Research and Strategic Initiatives Department and in coordination with the student’s academic adviser, the fellow will produce studies on existing voucher frameworks in several states. The fellow will be responsible for working with AFT staff to develop a research plan, working toward the creation of specific research deliverables by the fellowship’s conclusion.
