6/19/17 9/26/17

Jack Kurila is a rising fourth-year undergraduate at the University of Chicago, majoring in economics and mathematics. His primary research interests include domestic education policy, as well as public policy's effect on income inequality. He is a member of the Chicago Debate Society on campus and currently serves as Training Director for the team.

During the summer of 2017, he worked with Michael Dinerstein as a Brickell Metcalf intern, examining allocative efficiency in US schooling markets and the effects of demand reallocation. The project focused particularly on New York City high schools, and whether or not reallocations of demand in response to policy changes lead to overall improvements in school quality and student achievement.
