The new research from Beth Akers and Matthew Chingos on student loan debt was highlighted in a New York Times column.  The report was also featured by Washington Post's Wonkblog, BusinessWeek, Slate, and The Atlantic, among others.

Akers's recent Chalkboard post on the typical student loan borrower was cited by Vox

Tom Loveless's 2012 study on the likely impact of the Common Core State Standards was cited in a Times-Picayune article about the controversy surrounding the standards in Louisiana. That same study, as well as an update that Loveless published in 2014, are cited in a Huffington Post column about the reformation of the Common Core. 

Chingos is quoted in a TIME article about the language learning app Duolingo.
