Jon Valant is a Fellow in the Brown Center on Education Policy at the Brookings Institution. Valant studies K-12 education policy and politics, with a focus on urban schools and educational equity. Much of his research examines charter schools and school choice, including studies of how families choose schools for their children and how the design of school choice systems affects students and schools. His current work on these subjects focuses on New Orleans, where he is a Research Fellow at the Education Research Alliance for New Orleans. Valant also studies public opinion in education, the design of school performance reports, and test-based accountability, among other issues.
