Jonathan Slakey is a Director of Data Analysis and Supports for the California Charter Schools Association. He takes advantage of Stata and Excel skill training (generously provided by Professors Phillips, Reber, Shah, and Yin) every day to increase organization-wide understanding of K-12 enrollment trends and academic outcomes in California. He also supports charter school staff to incorporate data into school decision-making. During his time at Luskin, Jonathan served with the Association of MPP Students and for his summer internship traveled to rural India to evaluate an afterschool tutoring program. His Applied Policy Project team received honors for their project: “Income Supports in Afghanistan.”
