Washington, D.C. – Dr. Dan Goldhaber, a leading economist specializing in educational productivity and teacher quality issues, is joining the American Institutes for Research (AIR) on July 1 as AIR Vice President and Director of the National Center for the Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER) at AIR.
Dr. Goldhaber, who will continue to serve as director of the Center for Education Data & Research at the University of Washington, replaces Dr. Jane Hannaway, who led the creation of CALDER, a federally-funded center that is a joint project of AIR and scholars at Duke University, Stanford University, the University of Missouri, Northwestern University, the University of Texas at Dallas, the University of Virginia and the University of Washington. Dr. Hannaway has been named an Institute Fellow at AIR and is joining the faculty at Georgetown University as a professor in the McCourt School of Public Policy.
“We are delighted Dan is joining us and sharing his expertise in educational productivity and reform at the K-12 level, and his research background on how policies influence the quality of teachers in the workforce,” said David Myers, AIR’s President and CEO. “His work as a principal investigator with the CALDER team while with the University of Washington makes this a smooth transition.”
“Jane is an outstanding researcher and leader,” said Myers. “We are deeply grateful for the many contributions she has made to AIR and to CALDER and are delighted she will continue to share her insights as an Institute Fellow.”
