David Deming is an associate professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a faculty research fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research. His research focuses broadly on the economics of education, with a particular interest in the impact of education policies on long-term outcomes other than test scores. Recently, he was named a William T. Grant Scholar for his proposed project, The Long-Run Influence of School Accountability: Impacts, Mechanisms and Policy Implications. His current research includes the end of race-based busing in Charlotte-Mecklenburg (N.C.), understanding the rise of for-profit postsecondary education and the consequences for student outcomes, and the policy implications of expanding access to early childhood education. Professor Deming is on leave at the NBER for the 2014-2015 academic year.
