The Effects of Federal Adoption Incentive Awards for Older Children on Adoptions from U.S. Foster Care | JPAM Featured Article

When children in foster care cannot be reunified with their parents, adoption is considered a better option for permanent placement over long-term foster care. The federal Adoption Incentives program was established in 1997 to provide annual performance bonuses to states for increases in adoptions from U.S. foster care. This paper uses changes to the Adoption Incentives program in 2003 and 2008 to analyze states’ responses to the federal performance bonuses.

APPAM Member Ashlyn Nelson Named a Top Contributor in Education Discourse

January 30, 2013 09:53 AM

Education Week recently named Ashlyn Nelson, Assistant Professor at the Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs, to the RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Presence Rankings. This is a list of top contributors to the public debate about education. The rankings are the creation of education researcher and author Rick Hess, who describes them as a way "to recognize those university-based academics who are contributing most substantially to public debates about schools and schooling."

This is the first time on the list for Nelson, who conducts research on housing and education finance, education policy, and the mortgage crisis. "I have tremendous respect and admiration for the scholars listed in the RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Presence Rankings, and I am honored to be mentioned among them," she said. "The rankings illuminate the important role of scholarly research in shaping education policy, and I hope to contribute more in the future."

Nelson's research includes a project with colleagues at three other universities to study the impact of home foreclosure on student performance in school. The three-year project, supported by a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, focuses on communities that were hit hard by the foreclosure crisis in California, Florida, and New York.
