The UChicago Consortium seeks a Research Scientist to lead quantitative research and evaluation studies inform policy and practice in the Chicago Public Schools. The UChicago Consortium is particularly interested in candidates with expertise in teaching and learning, elementary education, or post-secondary education.

Some coverage has used the lack of applications at particular schools to make inferences about students' interest in those schools. As we note in the paper, students do not need to apply to attend their neighborhood school, so application data cannot be used to ascertain student preferences for their own neighborhood school.
Key findings teacher preparation programs may be interested in:
PKTP has three components: a facilitated cross-grade, cross-school professional learning community for teachers; common classroom practices across pre-K and kindergarten; and family learning activities. This program is staffed by Business and Professional People for the Public Interest (BPI), a public interest law and policy center. Chapin Hall and the UChicago Consortium conducted a mixed-methods study to investigate PKTP’s implementation and the influence of PKTP participation on relationships among teachers and family members.
