Russ Whitehurst was quoted in a Wall Street Journal article about U.S. high-school students’ declining interest in math and science fields.

Beth Akers and Matthew Chingos's recent research on student loan income-based repayment programs was highlighted by the Wall Street Journal and National Journal. An op-ed on the topic, penned by Akers and Chingos, was published by Real Clear Education, and an opinion column by John Sununu, published in the Boston Globe, cites the report as well. 

Tom Loveless's 2012 study on the Common Core was also cited in a Washington Post column about Arne Duncan's dismissal of his critics. Loveless's follow-up study from the 2014 Brown Center Report and Russ Whitehurst's 2009 analysis of state standards were also cited.

Loveless was quoted in a Boston Globe column about the pressures of contemporary high school.

Whitehurst's 2012 paper on compulsory school attendance was cited in an Education Week article about a new study on the topic.
