The School of Education’s Education Lecture Series will present a talk by Tomas Monarrez, Ph.D., of the Center on Education Data and Policy at the Urban Institute, at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 21, in the Carlo Auditorium, Tegler Hall.
Monarrez’s research focuses on education policy topics as they relate to economic and racial inequality. Current research projects examine the relationship between school attendance boundary policy and the racial segregation of schools, the impact of for-profit college openings on the structure of local higher education, and the effect of state tuition equity policies on the postsecondary attainment of undocumented immigrant high school students.
Monarrez received his B.A. in economics and mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin and earned his Ph.D. in economics from the University of California, Berkeley.
Lunch will precede the talk.
The series is co-sponsored by the School of Education and Office of the Vice President for Research.
