The Ellison Report is a weekly journal of policy, politics, and the people.

 

PART I: Alan Berube, Brookings Institution, explains that while Black unemployment may have officially stabilized somewhat, Black wage earnings have showed signs of decrease.  

PART II: Lilia Tamm Dixon, Open Debate Coalition, argues what’s wrong with the modern presidential debate and why it is time to mix the format and issues up. 

PART III: Austin Hart, American University, examines how much the current electorate is worried about the economy and whether perceptions of economic conditions will play a larger role in this election cycle than realized.  

PART IV: Arthur Lupia, University of Michigan, on why referendum votes are on the rise, why that might be a problem, and how they really don’t offer what voters might expect.

 

And from the producers of The Ellison Report, Voices of K12 presents a conversation series featuring the latest developments, challenges and innovations in the K-12 education space.

An Ellison Report special: Voices Of K12.

Nate Davis is Executive Chairman of K12 Inc., a technology-based education company and leading provider of online learning programs to schools across the U.S. He is also a regular contributor in The Hill.  Davis discusses the lack of focus on K-12 from 2016 candidates, how digital innovation in education reduces inequity, and whether the NAACP’s recent moratorium on charters is misguided.
