Katharine O. Strunk is a professor of education policy and, by courtesy, economics, and the Clifford E. Erickson Distinguished Chair in Education and the faculty director of the Michigan State University Education Policy Innovation Collaborative (EPIC). She is also the immediate past-president of the Association for Education Finance and Policy (AEFP). Strunk's current research through EPIC is focused on working with local and state education agencies on studies that will help them inform policy and practice.
Rooted in the fields of economics and public policy, Strunk's work centers on structures that are central to state and district operations and policy and the ways these structures affect policymakers' decisions and outcomes. Her research examines teacher labor markets, school and district improvement and accountability policies, and efforts to improve student achievement. Follow her @KatharineStrunk and @epicedpolicy
