In The News Piece in Inside Higher Ed

Stephen Burd was quoted by Inside Higher Ed in an article about President Trump's proposed cuts to college-prep programs:

Smaller studies have been undertaken, some of which have shown positive results. Evaluations of Upward Bound Math and Science and Talent Search—two different TRIO programs—found positive effects on low-income students’ path to college. But neither studied randomly assigned student populations, as researchers would have preferred.
“There’s never been a big evaluation. There have been a lot of little ones,” said Stephen Burd, a senior policy analyst with the Education Policy program at New America.
